FROM HARLEM AVENUE TO HOLLYWOOD BOULEVARD: AN EVENING WITH JOHN MAHONEY - 7:30 to 10:00 PM - The Historical Society of Oak Park & River Forest presents "From Harlem Avenue to Hollywood Boulevard: An Evening With John Mahoney" at the Lake Theater 1022 W. Lake Street, Oak Park.

In an in-depth open interview format presented on stage, Doug Deuchler, Oak Park film and entertainment critic, will pose intriguing questions to the celebrated actor and longtime Oak Park resident John Mahoney, focusing on his career in theatre (both locally and on Broadway), film, and television. During the roughly hour-long interview, film clips will be shown, and later audience members will be invited to submit written questions for Mr. Deuchler to ask Mr. Mahoney.

Mahoney, whose acting career goes back to 1977 at Chicagoís Steppenwolf Theatre Company, is perhaps best known for playing the role of Martin Crane, father of Frasier and Niles Crane, on the hit television comedy Frasier, from 1993 to 2004.

Proceeds from the event will support the renovation of the vacant building at Lake and Lombard in Oak Park, the future home of the Historical Society. For ticket prices or more information visit www.oprfhistory.org.
