Rudy and his friends light up the stage in this exciting new musical adaptation of the holiday TV special that celebrates the misfit in all of us. From Rudolph, the reindeer who tries to hide his very shiny nose before he realizes he can save Santa's Christmas, to his pals Clarice, Hermey the Elf, Yukon Cornelius and even the Abominable Snowman, this song-filled, large-scale extravaganza brings their unforgettable adventures to life. In addition to the classic title song by Johnny Marks, the original soundtrack boasts great tunes like "There's Always Tomorrow," "We're a Couple of Misfits," "Silver and Gold," "A Holly Jolly Christmas" and more.

The performance was somewhat interesting. It suggested
different problems we certainly face in America.
The acting was overall fine. It just didn't move me or
interest me that much overall.
The NU theaters, however, are a nice addition to the
community. They might have been there awhile, but it
was my first visit to both the Louis and Barber theaters.
Identity. Unemployment. Communication. Dreams. Race. Politics. Technology. From plays to video shorts to graphic narratives to songs, celebrated Hollywood actress and writer Regina Taylor has partnered with Northwestern University students and faculty members to create a fearless, one-weekend-only festival of original works. Through a number of different performances, more than 50 members of the Northwestern community have come together in a personal, provocative and challenging examination of who we are as individuals, where America has been, where it is going and how we can own our voices to make a difference in the world today.
Two of the 10-minute-plays series presented at the festival are Dreams (an exploration of The American Dream, shifting the dreamscape as the reality of our times is revealed) and ID (an exploration of the constructs of identity, dissecting and reconstructing issues of race, gender and sexuality).
