Everybody's favorite holiday humbug, Ebenezer Scrooge, takes a fantastical journey of redemption -- in two colors with one live musician and no (spoken) words -- when Silent Theatre Company presents Charles Dickens' beloved story, A Christmas Carol, as told through the lens of silent film. Surly miser Scrooge, whose cold heart has isolated him from his community and the spirit of Christmas, is visited by Jacob Marley and the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future. Slowly, he discovers what it means to be fully human and begins to find the joy in rejoining the world. Learn More

Tremendous insight into family dynamics make this more than local inside baseball. TV updates between the scenes are clever, and clear enough for non-fans like me. Authentic neighborhood types from both North and South Sides, as well as wannabees from White Plains, Buffalo Grove, and other outlying spots add to the mix.
This show needs to stay beyond September so those fans can come out for some life lessons.

Two brothers, ten years, one bet. Black and Blue treads into the realm of Chicago rivals, sports fanatics, and the good old fashioned American bar bet.
About the Ticket Supplier: Factory Theater
Founded in Chicago, Illinois in 1992, Factory Theater is a theater organization dedicated to the writing, directing, performance and production of original works written by ensemble members that are accessible to inexperienced as well as seasoned theatergoers. Since 1992 the Factory has produced more than 60 productions that have been enjoyed by both critics and audience members.
Factory Theater bridges the gap between critical acclaim and audience accessibility. Most of their shows have received rave reviews and awards by various publications including The Reader, New City, the Chicago Sun-Times, the Chicago Tribune, and L.A. Weekly, among others.
In 1998, Factory Theater opened a branch company in Los Angeles, California, and many of their ensemble members relocated out west to pursue careers in film, television and screenwriting and to help create a national presence for the company. Factory Theater has also taken trips out to New York on two separate occasions - in 1998 their After-Dark award winning production of The Vinyl Shop was the hit of the Fringe Festival, and in 2001 Factory was invited to the H.E.R.E. space in Soho by PSNBC to perform The Death And Life Of Barb Budonovich, a short version of their production Varations On Death.
The Factory attributes its success to hard work, dedication, and love for theater. Those attributes continue on in the Factory's vision of writing and producing new works to provide their ever-growing audience with laughter and inspiration.
