|The Goodman's Christmas Carol is one of over 13 playing in Chicagoland this December|
This does includes at least 5 Nutcrackers (and I know of at least one Nutcracker on Ice in Evanston not on the list), 3 versions of It's A Wonderful Life , Two takes on A Charlie Brown Christmas, One takeoff on Lethal Weapon (Yippee Ki Yay, Merry Christmas) and thirteen (yes 13) versions of A Christmas Carol.
Also not on this list is Burning BlueBeard at the Neo-Futurists, whose entire weekend run was sold out about 12 hours after they went on sale.
How much is too much? There is a Comedy Roast of Scrooge, a Second City sendup of Christmas Carol, a Klingon Christmas Carol, a Steampunk Christmas Carol (both performed at the same theatre, so maybe they just know their demographics?)
I'm pulling out of that long list 5 kid friendly shows that look like they would be good or demand your attention. I'll also pull out three shows that I think might be good as a date night.
Please note, I'm not including any actual Christmas Carols in the listings here, Almost all of them will be family friendly, (well, a couple are tilted towards R) and I know that the one at The Goodman Theatre is always very good. It's just that there are many other Holiday stories to tell.
If you don't see a show you like, please peruse the list. I'm sure you will find something of interest.
Hope you enjoy your Holidays at the theatre! There is no shortage of choices!
