Description

Andy Warhol’s Christmas Special, or How Hanukkah Stole Christmas is presented as a holiday tale from Andy Warhol. In the days leading up to Hanukkah, Honey Shapiro, a dying Jewish girl, falls in love with her neighbor, comes to hate her Make-A-Wish Foundation representative and wishes for Hanukkah to replace Christmas as the most popular winter holiday. When the a man shows up claiming to be the God of Hanukkah with his insane girlfriend, Honey—along with her friends and family—are trapped in her house for eight nights, forced to relive the previously untold “true story of the first Hanukkah.”

This new play was written by Improv Asylum main stage member Jeremy Brothers, who also stars as Andy Warhol. The cast also includes current and alumni Improv Asylum company members MIchael Anastasia, Taylor Burris, Cathleen Carr, Susan Constantine, Douglas Anthony DiPietro, Richie Moriarty, Lori Salmeri and Adam Soule.
