Broadway in Chicago's summer concert: Sounds of the fall season

Posted in Rock & Roll Christmas Tale

Dee Snider - Chicago Tribune

So many people showed up Monday night for Broadway in Chicago's annual promotional concert in Millennium Park that the gates to the Pritzker Pavilion were closed, with a capacity 11,000 people inside and at least another two or three thousand musical-theater fans either lined up around the edges of the venue or seated on the grass elsewhere in the park.

Unlike the actual shows, of course, the outdoor event has no admission charge, offering a chance to hear at least a number or two from, say, "Jersey Boys," without coughing up the big bucks.

The only recognizable name on the bill was Dee Snider. The former front man for Twisted Sister was shilling for his upcoming show, "Dee Snider's Rock & Roll Christmas Tale," one of the rare celebrity-penned musicals that actually features the celebrity composer, live every night. Snider's hugely enjoyable contribution was a mash-up of one of Twisted Sister's biggest hits, "We're Not Gonna Take It," and the lyrics of various carols — a preview, apparently, of more of the same.
