Chicago has always been full of magic and at one point the magicians of Chicago became famous for their particular style. It's an up-close and personal kind of magic that doesn't have the grandiose spectacle that other acts bring to the table, but is every bit as astonishing. In some ways, it's much more fun since the audience is part of the show. The Magic Cabaret brings that golden age of magic, mystery and mischief back to to Chicago audiences hungry for the unusual. In every show, PT Murphy and David Parr present classic conjuring in the Windy City style, using every day objects to bring their stories of old-time magic to life. With an emphasis on audience participation, and liberal doses of humor, spookiness and surprises, the magic cabaret is actually fun for everyone, old or young. Learn More

Truly mesmerizing! My companions and I were impressed by the caliber of the production, The Christmas Carol. We laughed out loud, tapped our toes to the music, and were drawn in by Scrooge's emotions. This was the first time attending a production at the Victory Garden Theatre, and we left the theatre making plans to attend again.

<p>For those who think Charles Dickens wrote A Christmas Carol to create a sentimental-Hallmark-greeting-card experience, think again! When Provision Theater’s Artistic Director Tim Gregory and multiple-Jeff-Award-winning director/writer David Bell actually read A Christmas Carol they realized that they, too, had been led astray over the years by the over-simplification and over-commercialization of this great work. At its core, Dickens' classic is a story of deep human transformation—and the great hope that such transformation is possible, even for the Scrooge-iest of us. This Jefferson Award Nominated adaptation, written by Gregory and Bell, is one of the truest to the original theme you’ll ever see. </p> <p>Brad Armancost returns this year as the miserly Scrooge, reviving his Jeff-nominated performance as Best Actor, along with a stellar cast of actors, singers and dancers to bring you this moving version of a must-see Christmas classic. </p>
