Mr. Chris De Salvo entered the world of the MENTAL NOTION SOCIETY during the tenure of the play, Yellowstone: A Twilight Zone Musical (Pub Theater, 2012). After that stint, he made an appearance at the Mental Notion Society 2 Year Anniversary (Ace Bar, 2012). And what followed was the next step for a musician/actor that’s driven to make a mark – a one-person play, entitled MONO(logue).
Synopsis: With a concoction of music, scenes, and of course, monologues, Chris De Salvo presents (Mono)logue – an in-depth look at the positives & negatives of the artist as a musician, a lover, and a human. Written & Composed by Chris De Salvo. Musical Direction by Brad Kemp. Co-Directed by Chris De Salvo & Jonald Reyes. Produced by the Mental Notion Society.
For people to cure their interest in the sounds of De Salvo, he has 2 performances at the well known Davenport’s Piano Bar. The Mental Notion Society and De Salvo encourage friends, family, and peers to come and enjoy these tunes.
WHO: Chris De Salvo
WHERE: Davenport’s Piano Bar – 1383 N. Milwaukee Ave., Chicago, IL 60622

Then after the lyrics and musical notes tug at your ear, we further encourage you to attend De Salvo’s MONO(logue), set to premiere at the Studio BE Theater. As follows:

Amongst fellow actors to assist in the process, we would like to welcome Stephanie Brandenburg. Although a one-person play, MONO(logue) intertwines with other players to represent images/feelings/”ghosts” within the world De Salvo has created. Stephanie joins the cast after a talent-full pool of auditioning actors. The Mental Notion Society thanks the community of auditioners! And as always – more auditions on the Mental Notion website for future reference.
Looking forward to seeing you all at Davenports. Cheers.
