Second City is producing a new Christmas-themed show in Los Angeles, the Center Theatre Group announced Thursday.
"A Christmas Carol: Twist Your Dickens!" will open at the Center Theatre Group's Kirk Douglas Theatre (part of the complex that includes the Mark Taper Forum). It's penned by Second City alum Peter Gwinn (now a writer for the Colbert Report) and Bobby Mort, who once worked at iO at Chicago.
Second City's Kelly Leonard said that the show would only be Los Angeles and would be cast entirely with Los Angeles-based alums. "Maybe next year it could be in Chicago," Leonard said.
