Interview by Emma Rubenstein for The DePaulia
This winter, Broadway in Chicago is bringing a new take on holiday theater to the city. Written by Dee Snider of Twister Sister and directed by Adam John Hunter, “Dee Snider’s Rock & Roll Christmas Tale” provides a delightfully unconventional holiday production that resides between the realms of music and theater. Cast member and DePaul alumni Wilam Tarris took time to speak with The DePaulia about the exciting production, musical camaraderie, and the good time this winter’s show offers.

When hearing about a Rock ‘n’ Roll Christmas show, many people shudder at the absurdity of it. However, those people probably haven’t heard the surprisingly enjoyable mashup of “We’re Not Gonna Take It” and “O’ Come All Ye Faithful.” Created by the lead singer of legendary heavy metal band Twisted Sister, “Dee Snider’s Rock & Roll Christmas Tale” is a must-see show with both classic and not-so-classic holiday music like this.
