Following last year’s hit production, Fine Print’s "Christmas in Chicago" returns to Chicago Dramatists with a whole new show to wrap up 2012.
Four ego-driven actors are all set to perform a comedic, musical year-in-review. Now if they could just stick to the script. Can the gang overcome their personal agendas, insecurities and competitions to save the show and capture the spirit of Christmas? Well, they pulled it off last year.
Chicago Theater Beat called the 2011 production "a four star revue that knocks over the sacred cows and political correctness with panache and a healthy helping of the sardonic humor that is Chicago." And Chicago Reader praised, “Several sketches in the Fine Print Theatre Company's yuletide year-in-review revue do an excellent job of capturing the zeitgeist.”
Veteran improvisers and comedic actors Heather Bodie, Tommy Beardmore and A.J. Miller return with newcomer Taryn Wood. A whole batch of new songs and new sketches, coupled with an original story from last year’s writers Patrick Kenney and David Himmel, along with returning director Aaron Graham and music director Gwen Tulin, make this a show not to be missed this holiday season.
Performances; December 13-23. Wed-Sat @ 8pm, Sun @ 3pm. Chicago Dramatists.
