CHICAGO – MCL Chicago Executive Producer Alex Garday is thrilled to announce the return of the critically acclaimed holiday musical parody “Yippee Ki-Yay, Merry Christmas: A Die Hard Christmas Musical” to the MCL Chicago stage. The campy musical has become a holiday staple for many Chicagoans and audiences from around the globe. All performances are on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., Nov. 17, 2017 – Jan. 13, 2018 at MCL Chicago (3110 N. Sheffield Ave.). General Admission tickets are $20. This year there are also limited $25 VIP tickets to every performance. VIP ticket holders will be admitted into the theater first to claim their seats. Tickets are available via online and cash and credit at the door. The show’s running time is approximately 80 minutes and all performances are BYOB.
“It’s been a true pleasure to produce this show for the Chicago community the past four years,” said playwright Michael Shepherd Jordan. “This will be the final year the show runs at its MCL Chicago home. With two additional songs and even more campy fun, it’s sure to be a finale to blow the roof.”
“Coming to MCL Chicago to see ‘Yippee Ki-Yay Merry Christmas: A Die Hard Christmas Musical’ has quickly become a holiday tradition for my family and friends,” said Phil Mulrue, an audience member who will be attending for his consecutive fourth year. “The show features catchy music and big laughs that will entertain everyone from the “Die Hard” lover to those that are only vaguely familiar with the film. We are looking forward to a fourth year of enjoying the musical based on the best Christmas movie of all time.”
A press night is scheduled for Saturday, November 18 at 8 p.m. Please email Michael Shepherd Jordan ([email protected]) for two (2) complimentary tickets to the press night or any other performance throughout the run. Due to the overwhelming popularity of the show for the past two years, a Waiting List will be started for sold out performances to try and accommodate as many people as possible. Please visit the MCL Chicago website to review the policy in full.
In this hilarious musical parody of the holiday classic “Die Hard,” audiences are invited to the annual Nakatomi Christmas Eve Party on the 30th floor of the Nakatomi Plaza. Grizzled New York cop Bruce McClane is there to rekindle love between his estranged wife and 80s business woman Holly Generic. Everything is going swimmingly until fashion obsessed Hans Solo and his group of German terrorists take everyone hostage…everyone except McClane.
Filled with hysterical musical numbers, farcical fight sequences, explosions, machine guns, and more Christmas Snow than Los Angeles ever gets, there is a reason “Yippee Ki-Yay Merry Christmas: A DIE HARD Christmas Musical” has quickly become a Chicago holiday tradition.
