Chicago Shakespeare Theater (CST) presents A Q Brothers' Christmas Carol through December 31, 2014. Check out the latest video below!

Chicago Shakespeare Theater brings audiences a fresh take on a beloved classic, developed with hip-hop sensations TheQ Brothers and CST Creative Producer Rick Boynton. After a special work-in-progress presentation last season, Chicago Shakespeare is proud to premiere this hip-hop reinterpretation of the perennial holiday favorite by Charles Dickens. Written and performed by GQ, JQ, Jackson Doran and Postell Pringle, this new adaptation takes on the cherished holiday tale and wrestles it from its classic roots with irreverence, an array of music styles and a lot of heart. The story is underscored with beats spun live by DJ Super Nova at the turntables, mashing up everything from reggae and dancehall music, to dubstep and epic rock ballads.

This holiday treat promises to be as cheeky, intelligent and street smart as audiences have come to expect from the Q Brothers. A Q Brothers' Christmas Carol rocks the theater Upstairs at Chicago Shakespeare for a limited engagement, November 19-December 31, 2014.
