Holiday Helper — Show of the day: ‘A Q Brothers’ Christmas Carol’

A Q Brothers’ Christmas Carol

Dickens’ classic has been rewritten again — this time to a very different beat. Local troupe Q Brothers, behind a number of Shakespearean “add-rap-tations” invoke the Ghosts of Hip-Hop Past, Present and Future to tell the age-old story of Scrooge with notes of dancehall, reggae, dubstep and rock ballads in the mix. (Through 12/31). Chicago Shakespeare Theatre, 7:30 p.m. Tuesday. $20-38. Buy tickets. —Selena Fragassi
