Children of Eden is a well-acclaimed musical theatre piece with book and score provided respectively by international theatre icons, John Caird and Stephen Schwartz. The production’s first rendition opened in London’s West End in 1996 and at the famous New Jersey Paper Mill Playhouse for a tryout engagement in 1997. Children of Eden is a piece freely based on the Biblical book of Genesis, providing a frank, heartfelt, and humorous examination of the age-old conflict between parent and child. The family-friendly content and soaring musical score, an accumulation of operatic Broadway-pop and gospel, continues to be one of the most adored works among theatre enthusiasts around the world. MJ Art Ventures is excited to mount the official Chicago revamped production in partnership with some of Chicago's best, as a holding of its first theatrical portfolio.
In this hilarious musical parody of the holiday classic Die Hard, audiences are invited to the annual Nakatomi Christmas Eve Party on the 30th floor of the Nakatomi Plaza. Grizzled New York cop Bruce McClane is there to rekindle love between his estranged wife and 80s business woman Holly Generic. Everything is going swimmingly until fashion obsessed Hans Olo and his group of German terrorist take everyone hostage...everyone except McClane. Filled with hysterical musical numbers, farcical fight sequences, explosions, machine guns, and more Christmas Snow than Los Angeles ever gets, there is a reason Yippee Ki-Yay Merry Christmas: A DIE HARD Christmas Musical has quickly become a Chicago holiday tradition. MJ Art Ventures is proud to support Chicago home grown theatre.
