Time Out Chicago reviews “Crazy for Swayze”

“At first sight, people might cock their head at Michael Sherwin and say, “I’m not sure how much he really looks like Patrick Swayze.” Those people are fools. Patrick Swayze isn’t a look, he’s a state of mind. To play the Swayz one must have a special mix of charisma and coolness, a certain ga-gung deep within his heart, and…okay fine, an upper body full of rippling muscles never hurt.  Michael Sherwin has all this in spades in New Millennium Theatre Company’s production of Crazy For Swayze: A Swayzical.”

It’s Pretty Dark Out There, Dudes

Keanu Reeves recently stated that “There’s darkness out there that’s keeping it from happening…” in regards to a “Bill & Ted 3”. We have a suggestion, bring “We are Wyld Stallyns: Or How Bill and Ted Save the World” to the big screen. It was a most excellent adventure on the stage, and it’s sure to be rock the faces off of movie goers….in our humble opinions :)

Here is the AV Club article that discusses this darkness in more detail: “Dust. Wind. Dude.”

Black Coffee Swayze

-That guy at the end of the bar is fucking Dalton, man. He killed a guy once. Ripped his throat right out.
-Bullshit.
– What ya need, buddy?
Dalton – Coffee, black.
