Sharon Gless, star of such TV hits as Cagney and Lacey, Burn Notice and Queer As Folk, is in town shooting a lesbian feature film, Hannah Free, based on award-winning playwright Claudia Allen's stage play of the same name.
Gless attended a benefit with other cast and crew Sunday, Nov. 9, at Center on Halsted. She spoke passionately about her character, Hannah, a free spirit who has loved her partner Rachel since they were both young girls. The drama is shooting in and around Chicago this month. It is directed by Wendy Jo Carlton, and Allen and Tracy Baim are executive producers.
