  • Robin Kacyn @ The Kol Hadash FUNdraiser!

    Join You're Being Ridiculous on Sunday, June 23 at Bella Via Ristorante in Highland Park to benefit Kol Hadash Humanistic Congregation! The evening will feature stories from a mix of talented (and BRAVE) members of Kol Hadash AND a few storytelling super talents from Chicago. You're Being Ridiculous is excited to feature Robin Kacyn at this special performance ... learn a little about Robin here and get your tickets!

    Robin Kacyn has done a thing or two in her 37 years: acting, singing, dancing, arts camping, daycare teaching, restaurant serving, concierging, yes really, at a very exclusive NYC gourmet grocery store, PR-ing - NEVER AGAIN! - and a whole lot of eating and drinking. Seriously, she's really good at it. Currently she's an Employment Support Specialist at Aspiritech, a Highland Park and Chicago-based organization that hires autistic adults for quality assurance and software testing - including the Kol Hadash website! - and nope, she still doesn't know what she wants to be when she grows up. She loves New Orleans beyond measure but hails from Cambridge, Mass, where she spent the early part of her babyhood before moving to Chicago and becoming firmly entrenched in the north shore community theatre scene. After graduating from Deerfield High School, she had a short stint at Emerson College before transferring to Washington University in St. Louis and earning a BA in Theatre. Then she moved back home, went to culinary school at Kendall College, spent several glorious years making plays with her best friends in the sorely-missed Theatre Seven of Chicago, and moved to New York before moving BACK to Chicago, where she resides with her lovely husband Matt and her perfect maniac of a dog Bowie, and where she'll probably stay, for now.

    What are you looking forward to this summer?
    This summer I am looking forward to tomatoes, to spending days with my dudes, to cocktails and chilled wine, to the very well cast His Dark Materials tv series, and to the hopeful and long-awaited appearance of a little bear of my, and our, own.
