But standing solidly between Mortimer and matrimonial bliss is the wackiest, weirdest family tree that ever grew. His two sweet aunts, Abby and Martha have developed murder as their favorite hobby. Out of a twisted sense of sympathy, they regularly poison lonely old men with a mixture of arsenic and elderberry wine and then bury them in the cellar. Cousin Teddy sports a pince-nez, a handlebar moustache and regularly charges up San Juan Hill - he truly believes that he is President Theodore Roosevelt.  And horrid brother Jonathan has just arrived from an asylum with a new face (ala Boris Karloff) and a sinister side-kick named Dr. Einstein. It’s “Home Sweet Homicide” as Mortimer tries to thwart the police, conceal a corpse (or 12) curtail anymore killing, and convince Elaine that a wedding with a man who is drowning in such a murky gene pool would lead to nothing but woe.

Now, we finally have her back!While only in her early 30s, two-time Grammy nominee Shemekia Copeland is already a force to be reckoned with in the blues. She’s opened for the Rolling Stones, headlined at the Chicago Blues Festival and numerous festivals around the world, scored critics choice awards on both sides of the Atlantic (The New York Times and The Times of London), shared the stage with such luminaries as Buddy Guy, B.B. King, Mick Jagger, Robert Cray, and Eric Clapton. Heir to the rich tradition of soul-drenched divas like Ruth Brown, Etta James and Koko Taylor, Copeland was presented with Taylor’s crown by her daughter, Cookie, in 2011 at the Chicago Blues Festival and given the honor of the new “Queen of the Blues” by official proclamation of the City of Chicago and the State of Illinois.Copeland’s passion for singing, matched with her huge, blast-furnace voice, gives her music a timeless power and a heart-pounding urgency. Her music comes from deep within her soul and from the streets where she grew up, surrounded by the everyday sounds of the city – street performers, gospel singers, blasting radios, bands in local parks and so much more.
