Legendary Chicago Blackhawks hockey hero Bobby Hull, "the Golden Jet," will make a one-night-only appearance in the Goodman Theatre's lavish annual production of "A Christmas Carol." The great star of the 1961 Hawks Stanely Cup team will don him now some gay apparel (in the Christmas sense) on Dec. 14, appearing in selected scenes on behalf of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Hull will accompany Charles Finch, 11, helping the Make-A-Wish kid fulfill his dream of acting onstage. Both Hull and Finch will wear special costumes, created just for them by he Goodman design team. This is the fourth consecutive year that the Goodman and the Make-A-Wish Foundation have made a young person's dream of appearing on stage come true. Following the performance, Hull will meet and greet audiences in the theater’s lobby, where signed copies of his book, The Golden Jet," will be available for purchase.
