With thoughts of the holiday season beginning to become more plentiful, Emerald City Theatre presents Ken Ludwig's 'Twas the Night Before Christmas at Broadway Playhouse through December 30 as a way to get people into the spirit a little sooner. Described as "a merry, modern mystery," the production highlights the adventures of Emily and her best friend Amos the mouse as they try to find Santa's missing and all-important Naughty or Nice List. The determined efforts of the two turn into a bit of comedy in this holiday favorite that is making its annual return to Chicago. For more information and tickets, go to www.broadwayinchicago.com.
