Roosevelt University’s Jeremy Myers voted one of 12 great performers in Chicago theater

Roosevelt University CCPA alumnus Jeremy Myers has been cited as one of the twelve great performers in Chicago theater by Time Out Chicago for his performance in Pussy on the House. The play, a drag parody of the Tennessee Williams classic Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, was produced by Hell in a Handbag Productions and received a four-star review from Time Out critic Emily Gordon. She praised Myers’ performance, writing that he “channels Elizabeth Taylor in this delightful camp take on Tennessee Williams,” referencing the classic Hollywood film starring the late Taylor. Gordon goes on to write, “Myers… is astonishing; his slinky, cajoling Maggie transcends cross-dressing and approaches reincarnation.”
