We tried El Barko, a Mexican restaurant on the east side of Ashland a couple blocks south of the theatre. Medium pricing but good food.

The weather was cold. I wore a sweater. Dress warm. The theatre was a tad chilly when we attended..

A charming holiday show for all ages. It's become a Chicago holiday tradition, deservedly so.

Great event for the entire family! I love the Chopin Theater and the cast was once again wonderful. This is the second year that we went to see this performance and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. A must-see during the holiday season!

Quotes & Highlights

“Four out of four stars … Over the years I’ve watched families leave this show moving closer together. … It’s moving, family-friendly, richly imaginative and distinctive.” —Chicago Tribune

“Instead of bratty kids and sugarplum fairies, Jake Minton and Phillip Klapperich’s tightly spun book introduces a family wracked by tragic loss. But magic still abounds, and in quantities that will bring a tear to the eye of even the stingiest Grinch. … it’s a nearly flawless, truly essential all-ages holiday show.” —Chicago Reader

Description

This production is recommended for ages 6 and older. Please see the show’s website for a parental guide with information about the show’s themes and subject matter.
