Holiday Overload


Every year, millions of Americans don't celebrate Christmas. Some are followers of non-Christian religions, while others have no religious affiliation at all. With reindeer and white bearded fat-men all around us, it can be easy to overlook the diversity present right here at home during this holiday season. But the Reduced Shakespeare Company is here to right that wrong, by celebrating all of the holidays, even the ones they may not be too knowledgeable about. At 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday (December 7 and 8), the Reduced Shakespeare Company returns to Washington University's Edison Theater (6445 Forsyth Boulevard; 314-935-6543 or to wish everyone a "Happy Merry Christmahanukwanzakah" with The Ultimate Christmas Show (abridged), an uber-inclusive stage show that offers good tidings to all by cramming every possible seasonal celebration into a single laugh-filled program of song and slapstick. Learn the true origins of The Nutcracker, how to craft the perfect letter to Santa and experience Christmas as the Bee Gees would (don't ask). Tickets to the holiday explosion are $20 to $36.
