There were some very funny holiday skits. A few repeats from previous years (they really need some new material). One or two skits were just okay (not many laughs from audience).

Great venue, fun cast - with some skits that were super and some that were less amazing. Very glad I went!

More Information



Audiences can take a break from the holiday crazies and laugh at the shopping, parties, and family stress-fests that punctuate this most wondrous time of year. The annual holiday revue will feature both festive new sketches and BNW yuletide favorites with the same audacious spirit of irreverent festivity the theater has been cranking out for more than 53 years. This will be the first show featuring the troupe’s resident cast in the newly renovated 824 Hennepin Ave. theater, nothing short of the best Christmas present ever. Not yet connected to the skyway, the new theater offers ample parking options, octuple the restrooms, and a full bar. Now do you believe in miracles?
