For some holiday cheer, bring the family to see Second City’s Christmas revue, “Holidazed,” at the Metropolis Performing Arts Center in Arlington Heights December 11-31, and stay at the nearby and affordable Elk Grove Chicago Hotel!
Your family is in town, the turkey has been basted and served a million ways, and you’re sick of football and TV Christmas shows. Take the gang to see “Holidazed” a satirical look at family traditions surrounding the Christmas season. You’ll hear bells jingling, watch Uncle Bob drink too much (on stage, of course), and the halls being decked with boughs of folly.
If you don’t know, Second City, one of Chicago’s most revered institutions, is a theater and actor training school in Old Town. The luminaries from Second City include three fourths of this year’s cast of “Saturday Night Live,” and such comic icons as Bill Murray, Gilda Radner, John Belushi, host of this year’s Emmy telecast Andy Samburg, Colin Quinn, Seth Myers, and a thousand more.
Also in December, Metropolis presents “A Christmas Carol,” The One and Only Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, and “A Carpenters’ Christmas.”
