Naked Holidays '09
Naked Holidays '09
Originally conceived by the Sacred Fools Theater Company of Los Angeles, Naked Holidays is a darkly comic Yuletide bacchanalia fit for Samson himself. George Larkin's opening is a boisterous reaction to some of the most popular holiday images; delving into the hilarious customs of our best loved winter holidays, and the pagan traditions celebrated nowadays as Christmas. Yet not even the Olympics delivers like this multicultural melange which climaxes in a scantily clad routine that looks a lot like Christmas. This year's medley showcases new works that explore deadly plots by Santa's eight angry reindeer against Rudolph and Rudnick (oh yes, Rudnick), a traditional Jewish nativity scene, a wholesome dad hiding a suspiciously jolly body bag, a belligerently randy hooker working the North Pole, and a bone-crunching table-smashing romp with everybody's favorite rotund holiday hero THE ANNIHILATORRRR*8212;yes, all in one evening of theater.
created by George Larkin, Stacey Lane, Brad McEntire, Steve Strangio, Benjamin Thornton, Oliver Thrun
