About the show

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?

Clever, Hilarious, Enchanting, Entertaining, Delightful

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.

Also This was MUCH better than I expected. Clever, sweet and smart. Perfect... Read more Read less

Low-budget, Cliched, Entertaining, Clever, Funny

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

Also The three performers are really wonderful and they give it their all, ... Read more Read less

Expected more, Dedicated actors, Parts brilliant, others dull, Funny, Entertaining

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.

Disappointing, Funny

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.

Also The idea is good and if the show is more developed, it could become ve... Read more Read less

Seasonal, Funny, Ambitious, Entertaining, Delightful

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.

Quirky, Fluffy, Clever, Funny, Entertaining

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.

Also This was not side splitting funny but there were some moments. The per... Read more Read less

Great acting, Funny, Entertaining, Clever, Delightful

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.

But untimately a real failure beyond belief, Ambitious

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.

Also This production was the WORST thing that I have seen in a long time. I... Read more Read less

Quirky, Insipid, Juvenile, Sophomoric, Cliched

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.

Genial, ambitious, Clever, banal, sophomoric, All-in, energetic cast, Excruciating and entertaining

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.

Also While pretty much the stuff of college theatricals, the game cast plow... Read more Read less

Funny, Disappointing, Excruciating, Overrated

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.

Talented people making fools of themselvs, Disappointing, Entertaining

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

Also Room for 99 people, only 10 were present.... Read more Read less

Slow, Funny, Entertaining, Delightful

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.

Hilarious, Great writing, Funny, Entertaining, Delightful

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.

Too much repetition, Slow, Disappointing

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.

Good acting, Good idea, but missed the mark, Disappointing

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".

Also I'm glad most other reviewers like this, but it didn't work for me. I ... Read more Read less

A sweet-natured and reverent love letter to the world of christmas, Loved the mash-up of 'it's a wonderful life' & 'a christmas carol', 21st century reincarnation of the three stooges, Funny and delightful, Entertaining

See it if You like quirky skit comedy.

Don't see it if You wouldn't be caught dead wearing a colorful and jingly Christmas sweater.

Quirky, Overrated, Excruciating, Disappointing, Banal

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.
