Time Out Says

Jim Henson's holiday TV special Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas comes to life onstage at the Hideout, with an all-star cast of Chicago musicians (including Eiren Caffall, Lawrence Peters, Matt Gandurski, Ari Bolles, Seth Vanek, and Kip Rainey) performing memorable tunes like "When the River Meets the Sea" and "Brothers in Our World." The Hideout's adaptation of the production also features the original book's dialogue and narration, read by special guests. Come to the heart-warming production early to catch a kid-friendly performance from Lily Emerson and Charlie Malave, then stick around after the show to hear the band play some festive tunes.
