It's a theatrical "grand slam!" Chicago White Sox Manager Robin Ventura and nine-year-old Emily Beazley of the Make-A-Wish Foundation make a one-night-only special appearance in A Christmas Carol on Wednesday, December 21 at 7:30pm. Ventura and Beazley don costumes tailored especially for them and make their Goodman Theatre debut in select scenes of the 34th annual production of Chicago's favorite holiday tradition.
Ventura probably won't be "donning" a dress (see what I did there?), but, did I miss the call to action pleading for the baseball community to take part in theatrical endeavors?
If so...I'm hoping pitcher-turned-author John Rocker gets asked to do "Rent" or someone solicits Alex Rodriguez to play the lead centaur in "Equus".
And, yes, that's the second "Equus" reference in a week...for the one of you who is counting.
