Entries in Christmas (19)
What: The 28th Annual Christmas Show
Where: Music Box Theatre, Chicago
When: Friday, December 16-24, 2011

The timeless story of Scrooge being visited by three ghosts in the hours before Christmas morning is told as only Dr. Spock could—in klingon*.
Needless to say, it’s equal parts theater, performance art—and a new holiday tradition.
