ABOUT CHICAGO VENETIAN NIGHT
A longtime favorite festival in Chicago that started in 1958, Venetian Night makes an exciting return to Navy Pier on Saturday, September 6. Gather at Navy Pier’s East End for one of the best areas to watch these illuminated boats decorated in the theme of your favorite Broadway musicals including Wicked, Annie, Chicago, Grease and The Phantom of the Opera, take to the water in a stunning aquatic parade, set to music. A spectacular Navy Pier fireworks display marks the conclusion of the parade. Judges will award prizes for first, second and third place winners, scoring them in these categories: adherence to the overall theme; originality; and lighting and sound.
DEE SNIDER’S ROCK & ROLL CHRISTMAS TALE tells the story of Däisy Cütter, a heavy metal bar band looking to make it big even though the 80s are LONG over. This year, these four guys are ready to take the ultimate step and, in mythic rock tradition, sell their souls to the devil in exchange for success beyond their wildest metal dreams! But every time they try to seal the infernal pact, their head-banging anthems turn into warm-hearted carols. Soon these rockers are forced to realize their dreams of stardom are no match for the Christmas spirit.
Dee Snider, infamous lead singer of Twisted Sister, has created a VERY funny, VERY rocking and (sshhh!) VERY sweet new holiday musical, guaranteed to rock your whole family’s holiday and twist your Christmas.
DEE SNIDER’S ROCK & ROLL CHRISTMAS TALE will play the Broadway Playhouse at Water Tower Place (175 E Chestnut) Nov. 4, 2014 through Jan. 4, 2015. For tickets, visit BroadwayInChicago.com.
