Porchlight Music Theatre plays host to the fast-growing Chicago theatrical phenomenon for a strictly limited engagement! Burning Bluebeard, created and performed by the critically-acclaimed theatre troupe The Ruffians, has been touted as “a show you won’t quickly forget and that you could only see in Chicago” by the Chicago Tribune, and Newcity says the production is “filled to the brim with irreverent humor, riveting dance sequences and enough charm to fill a bucket …” Told with music, clowning, tumbling, acrobatics and dance, Burning Bluebeard is inspired by the true story of Chicago’s former Iroquois Theatre and the unforgettable events that resulted in tragedy for 600 theatergoers at Christmastime in 1903. An immediate holiday tradition for many since its debut in 2011, each performance is a vaudevillian delight with a story and music that excavates the poetic and poignant remains of a piece of Chicago’s rich history and leaves the audiences with an unforgettable holiday experience.
