ALEXANDER AND THE TERRIBLE, HORRIBLE, NO GOOD, VERY BAD DAY
2540 N Lincoln, Chicago, IL 60614
Some days are just epically horrid. Alexander is having that day–no dessert at lunch, kissing on tv, railroad pajamas and no one EVEN CARES! In this larger-than-life musical written by the classic picture book’s author even the inanimate objects come alive to conspire against Alexander. And how do you deal with all this frustration? It’s time to pack for Australia.
