CHEERS LIVE ON STAGE is Headed to Chicago This Fall
According to the Chicago Tribune, the iconic NBC comedy series 'Cheers' will be heading to the city's Broadway Playhouse this fall. CHEERS LIVE ON STAGE is expected to run from September 20 to October 23, 2016. Although casting has not been announced, none of the original stars of the 1980's comedy are expected to be involved.
According to the Road Company's official website, the classic comedy is performed in two acts and features the interior of the iconic neighborhood bar, where drinking all day is the Norm! Audiences will get to laugh along with Carla, Coach, Cliff and Norm, as Sam "Mayday" Malone and Diane "Buzzkill" Chambers meet for the first time, share a first kiss and a first fight! A special VIP package will allow patrons to get in on the action and join the cast up on stage pre-show for a photo and a beer.
Cheers, ranked one of TV Guide's "50 Greatest TV Shows of All Time," aired for eleven seasons between 1982 and 1993. It garnered top 10 ratings for seven of its eleven seasons and often earned the number one ranking in the weekly Nielsens. The show received 26 Emmy® Awards and 4 Golden Globe® Awards.
