  • Patrick Curtin @ Steppenwolf!

    You're Being Ridiculous is super excited to celebrate PRIDE at Steppenwolf as part of their LookOut Series -- a performance series that presents the work of artists and companies across genre and form. We're delighted to welcome Patrick Curtin to YBR to share a story with us ... learn a little about Patrick here and get your tickets!

    Patrick Curtin is a Celebrant, also known as an Officiant, with a unique perspective on life.  Is your marriage merging two religions? Does your recently passed loved one have stories future generations need to hear? Patrick can help you honor and celebrate these important moments in life.  Patrick has told stories at You're Being Ridiculous, the Irish American Heritage Center, Second City, Steppenwolf, and Goodman Theater.

    What's the Queerest thing you've ever done?
    The queerest thing Patrick ever did was attend Catholic seminary.  For recreation the seminarians would act out scenes by Joan Crawford, Bette Davis and Olivia De Haviland from such horror classics as "Strait Jacket", "Hush, Hush Sweet Charlotte" and "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane".
