Press

entering its 6th year!

This hilarious musical parody of the holiday classic Die Hard invites audiences 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
