Written and performed by Steve O'Connell
What To Expect enjoyed a successful premiere at the Chicago Fringe Festival in September of 2010. The response was fantastic. What To Expect was given a Five Star rating on Theatremainia.com, garnering more audience written reviews than any other show in the festival.
What audiences are saying about What To Expect:
"O'Connell's engaging delivery of a very personal time in his life makes you feel like you are a part of his story. Don't miss this excellent show."
"An honest, funny, smart and heartwarming tale."
"A fantastic show with just the right balance of humor, emotion and honesty."
"The highlight of the festival."
"What To Expect strikes an important balance between relating to those that have gone through the pregnancy process and entertaining those who have not. O'Connell never misses a beat; What To Expect is a great time."
Developed from a weekly journal that was kept during his wife's pregnancy, Chicago actor Steve O'Connell pieces together a fascinating one of a kind take on that nine month period where excitement, fear and hilarity collide. What To Expect is not so much a retelling, but a reliving of this journey. Funny, poignant and always honest, this solo performance piece is more than just a series of anecdotes. It's an intimate look at one man's response to change. What To Expect details the surprise, the confusion, the dread and the joy of a life continuing and a life beginning.
