Hey Nonny’s first sell-out was our first Café Carly cabaret show — featuring Chicago’s most talented young musical theater performers, wrangled into a uniquely-themed show by hometown girl (and former NYC cabaret performer) Carly Stocking. Every Café Carly presents different songs, performers and jokes, but every one is a polished, high-energy songfest for delighted crowds. Everyone always praises the heroes, but what about the villains? There’s so much more to them than simply being evil. It’s time to celebrate the antihero. Featuring Max DeTogne, Erin Daly, Joseph Farrell, Neil Stratman, and Carly Stocking.
Carly Stocking is an Arlington Heights native and received her BFA in Acting from Illinois Wesleyan University. She returned to Chicago after spending five years in New York City producing, directing, and performing in cabaret shows. Theatre credits include: Cinderella in Cinderella, Miep Gies in The Diary of Anne Frank, and Helen in the West Coast Premier of Bob (B Street Theatre), Open For Me (Voices Theatre), and As You Like It (Milburn Stone). Carly is currently a director for Setting the Stage in Arlington Heights.
Erin Daly is a Chicago native. She’s known Carly since they started college together in 2006 and is thrilled to be singing again with her best girl. Previous credits include Mrs. Claus in “Snowgirls” (Hell in a Handbag), Kaityn in “Triassic Parq” (Circle Theatre), and “Bat Boy” (Griffin Theatre).
Joe Farrell is an Arlington heights native who is thrilled to be making his first appearance at Hey Nonny! He received his bachelors in Performing Arts and Sociology from Dominican University. Joe is currently performing in Xanadu as one of the muses for Big Noise Theatre. You may have seen him this past season in Metropolis’s A Funny thing Happened on the Way to the Forum as Tintinabula. He is excited and thanks Carly for the opportunity to perform with amazing people. Joe also thanks his family and friends for their constant love and support!
