Lampooning everything from Dickens to Dr. Seuss and fruitcake to Frosty, this one-size-fits-all ugly Christmas sweater of a comedy takes you on a non-stop madcap tour of all your holiday favorites. More…
From the show:
Three actors decide to perform every Christmas story ever told -- plus Christmas traditions from around the world, seasonal icons from ancient times to topical pop-culture, and every carol ever sung.
Another Christmas Carol? Humbug! Why tell one classic Christmas story when you can tell them all?
See it if You have fond memories of the old classic Christmas specials(Charlie Brown; Grinch; Rudolph etc) and have a bit of a twisted sense of humor.
Don't see it if You’re a purist and would be offended to see some of your childhood favorites skewered (with love) but some take a beating nonetheless.
See it if u want to see a snarky, corny, satirical mash-up of everyone's favorite movie & TV holiday classics in a clever (if hit-or-miss) revue.
Don't see it if ur unfamiliar w/the standard Xmas classics (Wonderful Life, Scrooge, Grinch, Peanuts, Frosty, etc); u expect high production values & polish
See it if you like silly takes on many, but far from all, Christmas tales, energetically & well performed with an assortment of props on a bare stage.
Don't see it if you expect a review of "every" Christmas story-this hits many & also some seasonal carols. Rapid at times, slow at others creates confusion.
See it if you like the idea of seeing various Xmas stories and songs done together. The 3 actors were good but first act needs a lot of work.
Don't see it if you like a well developed show. The first act is very amateurish.
See it if You enjoy parodies about the many Christmas shows that we see each season. Three actors giving it their all. Christmas Carol is the best.
Don't see it if You expect an elaborate, polished production. There is a 10 minute break in the 90 minute show. This is unnecessary.
Also The three actors are very talented, and are a cohesive group.
See it if You want to see a mash up of Christmas classics. You are not too critical and don't take life and theater so seriously. You can laugh.
Don't see it if You are expecting a serious performance. You need well polished performances. You need a big production with many performers.
See it if You like a new twist on this classic and timeless story. Very talented cast of three actors who show off their many accomplished skill set.
Don't see it if You want the traditional classic story. You may want to skip it.
Also This was a fun and enjoyable evening.
See it if you needed an excuse to get out of a house full of visiting relatives and you couldn't to a bar because you are an alcoholic.
Don't see it if you loved any of those schmaltzy Christmas themes holiday TV shows you grew up watching every year around Christmas time.
See it if See it if you'll enjoy a clean version of a not all that good SNL-level skit. You have a friend in the cast.
Don't see it if you dislike shows emphasizing audience participation;want to see a polished production; dislike corny humor--not slapstick,just corny.
See it if You're up for a Christmas comedy that entertains in spite of itself, ricocheting from groaner to wit to occasional brilliance and back.
Don't see it if You're expecting a well-honed script that rises much above its clever concept, though the odd facts & dark asides repeatedly engage.
See it if You want to see a summary of Christmas stories and hear about Christmas traditions. Cast is quite funny
Don't see it if You do not like Christmas plays
See it if You don't mind seeing a show that seems improvisational, though it wasnt. Actors were talented, but the material was awful.
Don't see it if If you want to see a developed Christmas show. If you are not familiar with classic christmas stories, you would be lost.
See it if Support cast, have some very limited fun, unable to use Google and to read about Christmas traditions in different countries
Don't see it if Do not want show with the audience participation; some jokes are not for the kids, some are too childish. Dislike classical storie's spoof
See it if Three charming fellows with Christmas jokes from the past, even though most of the audience did not get the jokes, have their moments.
Don't see it if No matter if the show is good or bad, a 90 minute show doesn't need an intermission. Broadway Adam Daveline is stand-out of this production.
See it if You like comedy. The actors really did a great job making you laugh while even laughing themselves.
Don't see it if You like dramas or musicals with a lot of staging.
See it if you want to entertain children from 8-12. they will find it funny.
Don't see it if you like something for grown-ups as well. I left at the break, it was too repetitive in something that did not prove entertaining.
See it if you'd like a "Cliff Notes" version of several classic Christmas stories.
Don't see it if you're expecting a lampooning of the stories or anything close to a "madcap tour".
See it if you would enjoy a funny look at some of the most famous Christmas stories. These 3 actors do an amazing job playing many different parts
Don't see it if you’re not a fan of Christmas stories or do not enjoy shows with some audience participation
See it if You like Christmas, a Christmas Carol, and have a sense of humor.
Don't see it if You want to see a serious, accurate version of a Christmas Carol.
See it if Friend of performers, Like hopscotch vignettes. Few attendees have enjoyed the show. Swan lake sketch amusing. Actors show misplaced talent
Don't see it if Having walked out at intermission, rare occurrence for me. Primitive set, costumes, lines and rest. Really waste of time for me and spouse.
