“A TRIBUTE TO JAMES JOYCE… we experience the darkest depths, but we also see the blinding light.” -CHICAGO SUN TIMES

“HAUNTING MOMENTS and POWERFUL PERFORMANCES, and it’s simply yet beautifully designed” -CHICAGO READER

“A CHARMING GEM OF A TALE… this is a poignant and dazzling jewel of a holiday show.” -DAILY SOUTHTOWN

“A FIRST RATE ENSEMBLE… presented with such grace, passion, humor and vivacity that one is swept away by it.” -GAY CHICAGO MAGAZINE

Haunting and tender, this deeply touching holiday musical was hailed as one of the 2002 theatre season’s finest productions. Based on James Joyce’s Dubliners and filled with Irish folk melodies and dancing, Court Theatre is pleased to bring this holiday hit back this season. Chicago favorites, John Reeger, Paula Scrofano, and Deanna Dunagan will reprise their critically acclaimed roles. James Joyce’s “The Dead” is the perfect play to experience with your friends and family this holiday season.
