Studio BE and 4 Days Late Productions have decided to add two more performances on December 22nd and the 29th. The holiday show will run Fridays, November 16 thru December 28 and Saturdays, December 22 & 29 at Studio BE (3110 N Sheffield) at 8 PM. Tickets start at $15 and can now be purchased at www.studio-be.org or at the door.
After a sold out, 9 month engagement of Jersey Shore: The Musical, NPR has approached 4 Days Late to write an original holiday radio show. The company comes together with the intent of recording a show satirizing holiday commercialism, only to have it hijacked by one of the members for his own personal use. IT'S A WONDERFUL PRO-LIFE is a behind the scenes (think Noises Off) adventure of how the group ultimately rallies, in true Christmas spirit, to create perhaps the best holiday show of all time.
"IT'S A WONDERFUL PRO-LIFE explores much deeper themes connected to what the holidays are traditionally supposed to concern: the values of basic goodness and sacrifice, the gift of friendship, the pitfalls of greed and commercialism, the sense of community and belonging that helps us feel truly connected in a society," says Shapiro, Director and Studio BE's Executive/Artistic Director.
The production features 4 Days Late Productions company members, Anna Schlegel, Erin Johnson, Steve Truncale, Alex Myerchin, Nate Stoner, Dan Gold, Tony Jaksha, Emily Friedrick and Jason Lord. Directed by AaRon Shapiro.
4 Days Late Productions was founded in 2007 and features a collaborative team of writers who have once again birthed a gut busting original script. Their most recent success,Jersey Shore The Musical, ran for 9 months to sold-out audiences all over Chicagoland. Other productions include: Time to Stop Worrying, America: For Dummies, ObamaNation American's In Peril, iAlone.
