Producers of the commercial Cubs-themed endeavor “Miracle” have announced it will end its run at the Royal George September 1.
Set against the backdrop of the Chicago Cubs 2016 Championship season, “Miracle” tells the story of a working-class Chicago Irish family fighting to keep their bar near Wrigley Field afloat financially as the Cubs race to end the 108-year championship drought.
“Miracle” opened May 8, and clearly hasn’t been able to bring in the numbers producers had hoped for. The production has fought hard for summer audiences, bringing in Cubs stars and other local celebs to make appearances during the “7th-inning stretch.” Ryne Sandburg even appeared in a TV commercial for the show.
Our Marie Warner said that “if you’re a Cubs fan, it will take you back to a very exciting time,” but felt that the talented cast couldn’t overcome the gimmicky book and lyrics.
If you want to catch “Miracle” before it goes, there’s still time, and there are deals to be had. Wednesday night’s performances feature a $100 family four-pack offer that can be redeemed with the code 4PACK on Ticketmaster. The first 100 attendees on Wednesday nights will receive a box of Nuts on Clark popcorn when exiting the theater, and there’s Cubs-themed trivia on Thursday nights at 7 p.m. with big gift certificate prizes.
