Fine Print’s hit musical comedy returns with all new songs and sketches
In Christmas in Chicago, five actors are ready to perform a hilarious year in review show packed with original music, satirical Christmas songs, politically relevant sketch comedy and bushels of holiday cheer. But as the actors fight for the spotlight, their jealousies and insecurities hijack the show and lead it off the rails into their own private lives, with hilarious results.
Christmas in Chicago is written by Patrick Kenney and David Himmel, and directed by Aaron Graham, who cocreated the show with original cast members Heather Bodie, A.J. Miller and Tommy Beardmore. Taryn Wood returns to the cast a second time and Stephen Cefalu Jr. joins. Wood and Cefalu delivered acclaimed performances in Fine Print’s production of Boy Small by MT Cozzola earlier this year.
Reviews from last year’s sold out run
“Equal parts “Noises Off” and “30 Rock” (for its backstage antics) and “Forbidden Broadway” (only this time it’s satirical spoofs of Christmas carols) -four actors are muddling through a year-in-revue sketch comedy show while sabotaging each other and trying to steal the spotlight.” —Chicago Sun-Times (2012 feature)
“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. – David Himmel and Patrick Kenney pull out the stops and could teach the writers of SNL quite a bit about what is funny. The cast is top notch and the show is seamlessly directed by Aaron Graham.” —Chicago Theater Beat
