Dee Snider's Rock and Roll Christmas Tale to play Chicago
Nov 25, 2013

Dee Snider's Rock and Roll Christmas TaleBroadway In Chicago announced that DEE SNIDER'S ROCK & ROLL CHRISTMAS TALE, starring and written by iconic rocker Dee Snider, directed by Adam John Hunter and produced by John B. Yonover, will play the Broadway Playhouse at Water Tower Place (175 E Chestnut) Nov. 4, 2014 through Jan. 4, 2015. DEE SNIDER'S ROCK & ROLL CHRISTMAS TALE will be part of the Broadway In Chicago 2014 Fall Season.

DEE SNIDER'S ROCK & ROLL CHRISTMAS TALE tells the story of Däisy Cütter, a heavy metal bar band looking to make it big even though the 80s are LONG over. This year, these four guys are ready to take the ultimate step and, in mythic rock tradition, sell their souls to the devil in exchange for success beyond their wildest metal dreams! But every time they try to seal the infernal pact, their head-banging anthems turn into warm-hearted carols. Soon these rockers are forced to realize their dreams of stardom are no match for the Christmas spirit. Dee Snider, infamous lead singer of Twisted Sister, has created a VERY funny, VERY rocking and (sshhh!) VERY sweet new holiday musical, guaranteed to rock your whole family's holiday and twist your Christmas.

Further casting and other details will be announced at a later date.

In tandem with this announcement, legendary rock icon Dee Snider will soon release one of the new titles from ROCK & ROLL CHRISTMAS TALE, Silent Night, sung with television personality Giuliana Rancic. This electrifying reinterpretation of a holiday classic from Snider's new musical production marks Giuliana's singing debut and a portion of the proceeds from all digital download sales will support her charity, Fab-U-Wish. This foundation grants fabulous themed wishes to women undergoing treatment for breast and ovarian cancer. Enjoy this special musical collaboration and, in return, make someone's holiday merrier and brighter!
