If you were around in the 80’s and early 90’s you probably remember Cheers.
It’s one of the most successful sitcoms of all times. Next month the Emmy Award-winning series is launching its national tour and Chicago is on the schedule. That’s right, Cheers is coming to Chicago! The Broadway Playhouse at the Water Tower Place to be exact.
According to BroadwayinChicago.com, the production is based on the first season of Cheers. (Bummer for fans of Woody, Frasier, and Rebecca Howe!) It finds former baseball player & bar owner Sam Malone hiring newly single aspiring poet Diane Chambers to work in his pub. The cast also includes wise-cracking bartender Carla and frequent bar flies Norm and Cliff.
It’s sure to be a great time and bring out all of the die-hard Cheers fans in the city!
The Broadway Playhouse is located at the Water Tower Place.
175 E. Chestnut St., Chicago, IL 60611. It will run Sept. 20th through Oct. 23rd.
