"Q Brothers Christmas Carol"

This wild holiday twist on A Christmas Carol mashes up the time-traveling, spirit-raising story of the Dickens holiday fave with the fun and energy of classic hip-hop. Keep an eye (and an ear) out for clever references to everything from classic holiday movies like A Christmas Story to hip-hop pioneers like Run DMC.

Chicago hip hop sensations, the Q Brothers Collective, heat up the holiday season with a wildly entertaining ad-rap-tation of Charles Dickens’ classic. The crew mashes up hip hop with contemporary musical styles, ranging from reggae to dancehall music, dubstep, and epic rock ballads—all underscored with beats spun live by a DJ. 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 Cratchits, Lil’ Tim. Fully decked out in the holiday spirit, The Yard at Chicago Shakespeare is strewn with more than two miles of twinkling lights as the ghosts of hip hop Past, Present, and Future lead Scrooge on a journey of rhythm, rhyme, and redemption.
