Tidings of Tap!

The Fringe offered up some Christmas in September, thanks to the Miscreants' "The Roast of Santa Claus, or: The Miscreants Kill an Hour and Go to Cuernavaca." But now that the holiday season is actually here, perhaps you're looking for a more, er, family friendly holiday show?

Look no further: Chicago Tap Theatre's "Tidings of Tap" promises to be just the ticket! And by entering promo code FringeTap11 and wearing your Fringe button to the show, you can save $5 on an adult ticket! Click here for tix.

Laura Molzahn of wrote, "Never preachy and rarely predictable, 'Tidings of Tap!' doesn't provide the sentimental glow of self-approval that so many other holiday shows do. Nor does it trash the season or the human race for enjoying it. Instead it takes us on a mashed-up tour of holiday cliches, borne on the easy, breezy wings of tap-dancing."

"Tidings" is being performed on the UIC campus, so while you're in the area to see the show, you could easily revisit some of your favorite Pilsen hotspots like Decolores, Honky Tonk, Simone's and the Miscreants' watering hole of choice, Cuernavaca.
