CHICAGO -- Chicago's century-old Auditorium Theatre, rewnowned for its architectural splendor, is now celebrating the 30th anniversary of its historical 1967 restoration with a "Home for the Holidays Festival."
The impressive lineup includes appearances by such talents as native Chicagoan Mandy Patinkin, Gregory Hines, Harry Belafonte, Celia Cruz and Tito Puente, the dance troupe MOMIX and The Canadian Brass.
There will also be a performance by the Flying Karamazov Brothers -- known for their juggling mayhem -- and an appearance by Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo, the (in)famous all-male parody dance ensemble.
On Jan. 8 the Auditorium returns to post-holiday "business as usual" and hosts a fourth visit from the unstoppable Les Miserables touring company.
