Bar ShowWraps Up on a High Note By Sally Daly, CBA Public Affairs Director

W ere you tired of so many people lying about so many things in 2019? So were the talented singing and dancing lawyers of the Chicago Bar Association – and they decided to do something about it! The annual CBA Bar Show “For Lying Out Loud!” wrapped up on a hilarious high note, completing the 96th season of the storied CBA tradition. More than 50 CBA attorneys hit the stage to perform the annual rousing musical comedy revue that features creative songs and skits that parody local and national political figures and the top news stories and issues of the year. The 2019 production introduced some new characters and featured some brilliantly creative song spoofs. These included a song and dance number about Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot – “Proud Lori” – set to the music of the classic song Proud Mary. Another number featured the character of Patty Blagojevich imploring Gov. J.B. Pritzker to “Let Him Go.” “Sincere thanks to the sponsors, cast and crew of ‘For Lying Out Loud!’ for bringing us together to celebrate the holiday season with joy and laughter,” said CBA President Jesse Ruiz, who took to the stage with CBA Executive Director Terry Murphy on opening night to lend their voices in support of the longstanding CBA tradition.
