CHICAGO -- A multimedia treatment of the sordid legend of Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle, Fatty opens March 3 in a dramatic evocation by the John Fournier Quintet, a combo who specialize in the 1950's "cool jazz" sound. A combination jam session, dramatic presentation and multimedia showcase (featuring slides and film footage), Fatty reprises silent-movie comedian Arbuckle's surprisingly contemporary sex scandal. Despite a 1921 jury's acquittal, the accusations of rape and murder destroyed Arbuckle's film career.

The show's goal: "To provide a societal mirror that begs comparison with America's lust for celebrity scandals from O.J. Simpson to our current President." For information call 312-642- 8189.
