Work that humbug out with some holiday laughs! Second City alums and veteran Comedy Central writers Peter Gwinn and Bobby Mort have dreamed up this new twisted version of A Christmas Carol, infused with hilarious improv sketches and zany characters written specifically for its cast of L.A.-based Second City alumni. Scrooge, Tiny Tim, three ridiculous ghosts and a cast of The Second City's funniest alums take the Kirk Douglas stage by storm, as wicked satire, daring improv and a host of guest celebs run rampant throughout the Victorian streets.

What a great show! Well executed. I loved the storytelling & energy. The visuals are great and creativity pouring all over the stage. The singing of the full cast got warmer for the 2nd act. Loosely based on Shakespeare's Othello and our current society's ills. Go, you won't regret it! After 6m, parking available at nearby Culver City City Hall on Dusquesne. And, the KD Theater is a well-designed theater. All seats yield great views, so don't hesitate...
Quotes & Highlights
- “The year’s best musical! Though early in its creative life, the next major American musical could well be in the making.” --Time Magazine
- See a preview of Venice.
- The choreography team for Venice includes John Carrafa who received Tony Award Nominations for Urinetown and Into the Woods and a 2007 Media Choreography Award for his work on The Polar Express, as well as Tanisha Scott, whose diverse resume includes everything from Alicia Keys’ As I Am tour to the music video for Beyonce’s "Upgrade U" to the feature film Notorious for 20th Century Fox.
A next generation Broadway musical that uses the vocabulary of hip-hop while sampling Othello and Brecht to spin an epic tale of struggle and redemption.
Matt Sax and Eric Rosen, creators of the 2007 audience favorite Clay, return triumphantly to the Douglas with Venice, an ambitious new musical with a highly original score that fuses hip-hop, R&B and even opera. Set in the not-too-distant future, this tale of two brothers with conflicting ideas of how to lead a city caught in a terrorist war is a visionary new theatrical work filled with love, politics, treachery, tragedy and exhilarating music.
