A homage to one of the last century's most controversial comics, this biopic takes an an unflinching ride through the emotional landscape of Richard Pryor spanning sixty-one years and focused on the period between 1967 and 1982, from his birth to a pimp and a sex worker and childhood in the Peoria brothel owned by his grandmother, to the heady heights of success and the challenges it brought with it. A completely unendorsed play about the comic, this is definitely not one for the children.

Charlie Brown Christmas - The Musical

November 14, 2015-January 3, 2016

The iconic cartoon and comic strip featuring the Peanuts gang gets a brand-new stage musical in their honor for the holiday season by Chicago's very own Emerald City! When Charlie Brown bemoans the commercial nature of Christmas, he and his friends set out to create a special holiday pageant to rediscover the true meaning of the festive season. A wonderful way to introduce younger children to the Peanuts gang, and to explore the true meaning of Christmas! And of course, what Peanuts musical would be without Snoopy?!

Potted Potter

December 1, 2015-January 3, 2016

Distilling seven books into 70 minutes is no mean feat, but hold on to your wizard hats ladies and gents, because this two man production is a fast paced, thrill ride that will have you spellbound and roaring with laughter. Former BBC TV hosts Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner first found themselves parodying Potter in 2005, when they were asked to come up with a five minute recap of the first five books. What started as entertainment for fans waiting in line for the release of the sixth book snowballed into a full show, world tours and even an Off-Broadway run!
