Q Brothers Christmas Carol

"Their writing here is superb: sardonic, wise, smart, funny and, of course, mostly in rhyming couplets…these fascinating Chicago brothers are writing about themselves, their role in culture, their identity as artists, their co-options and creations." - Chicago Tribune

"Downright irresistible...its cast is so physically and verbally agile, and so savvy in their ability to adapt to a whole new meter and method, that it’s a pleasure just to watch them mix it up with such complete brilliance." - Chicago Sun-Times

"In the hands of these five clever, creative artists, "A Christmas Carol" has never looked or sounded more meaningful or timely….one of the Windy City’s favorite holiday events, especially among younger, hipper audiences. And it’s a terrific, cleverly-written and utterly captivating piece of theatre that deserves all the high praise it’s receiving."- Chicago Theatre Review


Q Brothers Christmas Carol

Throw your hands up, y’all—for a holiday treat set to a bangin’ beat! Chicago hip-hop sensation the Q Brothers—creators of Othello: The Remix and Funk It Up About Nothin’—turn up the volume on Charles Dickens’ classic tale, mixing everything from reggae, dancehall, and dubstep to epic rock ballads. Brighten your festivities with some cheeky spirit and a whole lot of heart—complete with visits from a Jamaican Jacob Marley and that youngest of the Cratchits, Lil’ Tim. The Q Brothers are joined by a live DJ as the ghosts of Hip-hop Past, Present, and Future lead Scrooge on a journey of rhythm, rhyme, and redemption.
