About the show

Both spoof and tribute, Recent Cutbacks' highly theatrical parody of 'Home Alone' is intensely physical, imaginative, and silly, using only rudimentary props and costumes to recreate iconic moments from the film. More…

The folks who brought you 'Hold on to Your Butts' and 'Fly, You Fools!' tackle their most ambitious project to date, featuring live projections, puppets, and a four-person choir, all told in Recent Cutbacks’ signature style of humor, nostalgia, and theatricality. Discover the true meaning (maybe) of Christmas this year with "KEVIN!!!!!!"

See it if You're a fan of Home Alone. You enjoy parodies. You like puppets. You want a fun, light evening out.

Don't see it if You don't like or haven't seen Home Alone. You don't like parodies or puppets. You want a serious play.

Hilarious, Ambitious, Clever, Entertaining, Must see

See it if you'd love to revisit a popular childhood memory in a fresh, creative, side-splitting show. The concept, staging, performances, etc. are A+!

Don't see it if you're worried about actually busting a gut. I haven't laughed this much at a show (or heard an audience laugh this much) in YEARS.

You don't need to have seen 'Home Alone' to enjoy the skill involved in 'Kevin!!!!!', but because it's so fast paced, it might be hard to follow if you have no prior ...

Even if you go for the singing ...

for a previous production "Comedy troupe Recent Cutbacks takes the flick, condenses it into sixty minutes, and reminds the audience just why we love the movie. The parody is nostalgia to the max with multimedia devices, puppetry, and Foley work that bring laughs and smiles from start to finish. 'Kevin!!!!!' is virtually a...
