TwistYourDickens

Deck the halls with boughs of comedy. Fa-la-la-la-la la-la la la. 'Tis the season to be jolly. Fa-la-la-la-la la-la la la. Don we now our gay apparel. Fa-la-la-la-la la-la la la. Troll the ancient Chi-town carol. Fa-la-la-la-la la-la la la. See the blazing fools before us. Fa-la-la-la-la la-la la la. Strike the harp and join the audience ... okay, well that one didn't really rhyme, but the point is there are a number of holiday comedies you should add to your naughty or nice list - and make sure to check it twice!

TWIST YOUR DICKENS
Goodman Theatre
December 5-28

Goodman Theatre and The Second City team up to bring a brand new twist to the classic tale of "A Christmas Story." With lines like "Jack Frost's nipples at your nose" and "Let's keep the lolly and/or gagging to a minimum," it's safe to say this Christmas tale is rated R. So grab a cocktail and get twisted.
