Santa's Dead and Dirty Carol's Christmas Closing (Theater and Galleries) Member Picks The Short List (Theater)

When: Fridays, Saturdays. Continues through Dec. 22 2012
Price: $10
A pair of campy, irreverent holiday one-acts from MidTangent Productions. In Santa's Dead, a group of elves has to save Christmas from Mrs. Claus, a femme fatale plotting to take over the North Pole. Dirty Carol's Christmas is framed as a yuletide TV special hosted by a jolly song-and-dance gal (Aaron Michael Adamkiewicz in drag) with a drinking problem and a raging libido. Katerina Papadatos steals both halves of the evening, first as the Marilyn Monroe-esque Mrs. Claus and then as an Anita Bryant-esque foil to Dirty Carol. But nothing in the production beats Mimi Monee's gloriously trashy costumes for wit and playfulness. If only the scripts had been given the same attention. —Zac Thompson
