Love Actually? The Unauthorized Musical Parody is a hilarious musical that follows nine quirky, questionable couples looking for love across the pond, and even 16 years after the movie premiere, we still ask ourselves these questions every Christmas: Is love falling for your secretary when you are Prime Minster? Falling for your secretary when you are married to Emma Thompson? Falling for the maid after your wife cheats on you? Falling for the wife of your best friend and showing up with poster boards? Whether you love Love Actually or love to hate Love Actually or have never seen Love Actually, you will actually love this musical! Check for half-price tickets on Hot Tix!
The House Theatre at Chopin Theatre
Nov. 12, 2021 – Jan. 2, 2022
The House introduces a new wintertime tradition with a reimagination of Hans Christian Anderson’s beloved fable. Lanise Antoine Shelley’s new adaptation focuses on the Snow Queen, her seasonal relationships with the earth, and the power she is learning to wield. When she shares her magical mirror with cousins Kai and Quin, her world is thrown into chaos, triggering a race against time to undo the ravaging of the earth. In this heartfelt adventure, the Snow Queen must confront mankind’s heartache and undo the pain that she herself has woven, in a story infused with The House’s hallmarks of magic, puppetry, and music. The Snow Queen is a tale of redemption and hope — and ultimately — a celebration of all seasons. Check for half-price tickets on Hot Tix!
