Written and performed by Mitchell J. Fain
Directed by Jeremy Wechsler
After completing an amazing workshop last year, Chicago's favorite holiday performer returns for a mainstage tour-de-force of his unique blend of storytelling, improvisation and cabaret.
It's Mitchell's very own Very Special Xmas Special(tm) as he pulls together a host of holiday stories from the audience, his own life and autobiographical war stories about how family, drunks, jewelry, funerals, 250 performances and the holiday spirits collide. Mitchell is joined by cabaret powerhouse Meghan Murphy and madcap pianist Julie B. Nichols in a sweet, sentimental evening of hard truths that change night to night.
"Highly recommended. A brand new, indispensable tradition, at once hilarious, tragic, moving and profane." — Chicago Theater Review
"★★★★ One of the most open and honest theatrical events I've ever attended" — Around the Town
