Featured Member Reviews: Holiday Edition

Show-Score | By Ryan McCarthy | Dec 6, 2016

Every Tuesday we're turning the spotlight on some of our favorite member reviews. This week's favorites are for holiday themed shows, including "Holiday Inn," "Christmas Spectacular" and "Sing!"

The holiday season is a time for family, but when the kids start bickering, and your crazy Uncle George starts arguing politics, it might be time to take your family to a show! This week's selections are culled from our Holiday Show Guide, which offers options for all ages and persuasions. From the kid-friendly "Christmas Spectacular" to the boozy "Imbible: Christmas Carol Cocktails," there's something for everyone to enjoy (even Crazy Uncle George!).
