"Often funny and completely zany ... A sweetly twisted trip back in time that anyone who loved big hair and a good synthesizer is sure to enjoy.  " - Chicago Theatre Beat

"A troupe of performers whose dedication and sincerity elevate even the most throwaway exchange. " - Time Out Chicago

"Raucous ... The cast take their roles well over the top, where they belong ... At its hilarious best when it's all about getting busy." - Chicago Reader

It's Prom season at San Irreal Senior High, and all the students are looking for the perfect date! Taking cues from beloved 80s and 90s teen movies, Chicago dell'Arte presents their own spin on the classic tale of the ugly duckling learning life lessons from her real talking sidekick about how to be pretty and popular by taking off her glasses, but keeping on her underwear so a nerd doesn't show them to his friends while they're dancing in detention, so she can get the boy of her dreams away from the slutty popular girl who has developed feelings for the older guy who pretends to be a student to gain inside knowledge on the goings on of high school teens! All of this with the best soundtrack of the year and in 3D! Come see the classic commedia characters get put through the Hughesian ringer for a night of montages, music, and dancing.  From some of the minds that brought you The Chicago Tribune's 3 out of 4-stars rated, The Literati and's favorite of 2008, Commedia Christmas Carol.
