Charles Dickens' holiday classic gets a clever hip-hop remix in A Q Brothers' Christmas Carol. Created by the Q Brothers and Chicago Shakespeare Theater creative producer Rick Boynton, the team behind the international hit Shakespearean "ad-rap-tation" Othello: The Remix, this irreverent update tweaks Dickens' beloved characters and sets Scrooge's time-traveling journey through the hip-hop decades to a live score by DJ Super Nova. You'll meet an Ebenezer Scrooge with an erotic passion for cash, a Jamaican Jacob Marley and Lil' Tim, the tiniest Cratchit with a slew of maladies, all singing to mash-ups of everything from reggae and dancehall music to dubstep and epic rock ballads. Sure to become a holiday favorite, A Q Brothers' Christmas Carol is as cheeky, intelligent and street smart as audiences have come to expect from the Q Brothers.
Running time is 75 minutes, with no intermission.
