Hosting their 88th annual Christmas production, The Chicago Bar Association casts aside its collective briefcase in favor of costumes and comedy for a laughter-packed revue. Throughout the show, a talented lineup of performers legally splits sides with well-tuned ditties, choreographed dances, and irreverent parodies that poke fun at local and national legal figures, politicians, sports stars and more. Leaving no stone or gavel unturned, acts will also address many of the year’s top headlines, allowing audience members to discard silly-putty replicas of newscasters and relive 2011 in style.
Attendees observe the litigious clownery from main-floor seating in the opulent Merle Reskin Theatre. Originally founded as the Blackstone Theatre more than a century ago, the performing-arts venue continues to surround guests with French Renaissance–style architecture. Ocular appetites are sated by golden sconces, an ornately detailed proscenium arch, and classic balconies devoid of heckling senior citizens with felt skin.
