Q BROTHERS CHRISTMAS CAROL @ CHICAGOSHAKES - DEC 14, 2017
The Princeton Club of Chicago invites fellow Tigers, family, & friends to enjoy this hip-hop holiday treat set to a bangin’ beat in the new Chicago Shakespeare Theatre's "The Yard." Chicago sensation the Q Brothers Collective turns up the volume on Charles Dickens’ classic, 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 Cratchits, Lil’ Tim. A live DJ brings a party atmosphere to the cabaret setting, as the ghosts of Hip-hop Past, Present, and Future lead Scrooge on a 75-minute journey of rhythm, rhyme, and redemption. Most enjoyed by ages 12 and up. Scroll down for reviews! Click HERE for a short video preview.

QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS EVENT?
"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 SunTimes
"HIGHLY RECOMMENDED—These eighty glorious minutes of boom-box beats get into your blood and bones—and inevitably they reach the heart...Unstoppable, unbeatable, relentless, four-star fun." - Stage & Cinema

"Postell Pringle, Jackson Doran, GQ and JQ... are all spectacular in dominating the dense rap language, their motors running from first moment to final blackout." - Chicagoland Theater Reviews
