November 21, 2019

David Sedaris is a Grammy Award-nominated humorist, writer, comedian, bestselling author, and radio contributor. Much of his humor is drawn from his unconventional North Carolina upbringing, his varied stream of odd-jobs (Christmas elf at Macy's, anyone?) and plays to his self-deprecating strengths, and now often concerns his life today in France with his partner.

Chicago's own Too Hot to Handel choir brings the music of Handel's famous work The Messiah to life with a modern twist. Re-imagined for the 21st century, the piece's melodies and text remain the same but rhythmic feel, orchestration and harmonic embellishment have been given a contemporary makeover that draws on the energy of gospel and soul.

It's currently home to the legendary Joffrey Ballet company and also plays host to hundreds of concerts and comedy shows every year.
