Fain waxes hilarious while brandishing cocktails and wry wit with the finesse of a Noel Coward characterCrain's
Fain is a true delight! A warm, humorous and uniquely delivered show that features tremendous storytelling and wonderful musicBuzz News
RECOMMENDED! Heartwarming. A deceptively profound and poetic capsule of the complicated, beautiful relationship actors have with their craft.Chicago Reader
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Both personal and universal in an exciting and relevant way, and a joy to see. It's a rare authenticity and joyful celebration of friends, festivities, and family, even when they're flawed. This is a holiday tale of the families we find and keep as our own, as much as it is of the families we come from. ChiIL Live Shows

Chicago's favorite holiday performer returns for a mainstage tour-de-force of his unique blend of storytelling, improvisation and cabaret.

It's Mitchell's very own Very Special Xmas Special(tm) as he pulls together a host of holiday stories from the audience, his own life and autobiographical war stories about how family, insurance fraud, jewelry, funerals, 252 performances, Hawaii and the holiday spirits collide. Mitchell is joined by cabaret powerhouse Meghan Murphy and madcap pianist Julie B. Nichols in a sweet, sentimental evening of hard truths that changes night to night.
