  • Heavy metal spoofed in family-friendly ‘Dee Snider’s Rock & Roll Christmas Tale’ Nov 21, 2014 2:45 PM
    “Dee Snider’s Rock & Roll Christmas Tale” features a satanic blood pact, an exorcism and lots of headbanging heavy metal music. Yet, this world premiere musical at Chicago’s Broadway Playhouse at Water Tower Place is family-friendly through and through. You might think this a paradox. But it’s no stranger than the notion that Snider, frontman of metal band Twisted Sister, would parody all of that by writing and starring in a good-hearted Christmas show.

  • New musical 'Amazing Grace' inspired by true story of adventure, redemption Oct 5, 2014 6:30 AM
    Most theater composers are told to start small when writing a first-time musical. But songwriter Christopher Smith ignored that advice with “Amazing Grace,” a world premiere musical that plays in a Broadway-scaled production at the Bank of America Theatre in Chicago starting Thursday, Oct. 9. “Amazing Grace” is about the life of Englishman John Newton (1725-1807), who is credited with composing the show's namesake song. Initially from a wealthy slave-trading family, Newton's views changed and he became an ardent abolitionist.
