Dee Snider came on to the Steve Cochran Show to promote his show that is coming to Broadway in Chicago. We highly recommended you go see that, but listen to this podcast to hear what Dee Snider’s grand-kids call him, why he loves Chicago, and a whole lot more!

Broadway In Chicago has announced individual tickets for the world premiere of DEE SNIDER'S ROCK & ROLL CHRISTMAS TALE, written by and starring iconic rocker Dee Snider, directed by Adam John Hunter and produced by John B. Yonover in association with Vicki and Bob Liggett, Charles Brennan and Mary and John Cooper go on sale to the public this Friday, Aug. 22 at 10 AM. DEE SNIDER'S ROCK & ROLL CHRISTMAS TALE 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 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.
