At the concession stand, cookies are $2 each. They should be $1. I'm willing to pay a 100% mark-up, but I won't pay a 300% mark-up.

Small theatre, very cozy. Play was funny, well-done and kept us engaged the whole time.

Good performance. The actors performed naturally like they really are the people in the act. They reminded me of the TV show “Friends” a lot, I guess it’s because hilarious events also always took place during those six friends’ holiday...continued

Description

Christmas is a time for sharing great food, great company and—let`s face it—the occasional bad gift. What happens when a well intentioned gift goes horribly wrong and spins a gathering of friends into Christmas calamity? theatre Q tells such a tale with the world premiere of the holiday comedy Keep the Yuletide Gay, by Dale Albright.

Part It’s a Wonderful Life, part Blithe Spirit, Keep the Yuletide Gay tells the story of five friends gathering for their annual Christmas dinner and gift exchange. Holly, the host, welcomes her three best single girlfriends and her (presumably single) gay best friend, Warren: a group collectively known as the Single Belles. One of the Belles, Fran, hires a mystic to tell Holly the she has turned Warren straight. What Fran doesn’t know is that the mystic really has the goods and casts a spell that indeed turns Warren hetero. Fran also doesn’t know about Warren’s surprise guest: his new boyfriend Chad. Starting with a badly set dinner table and deteriorating into an incredibly awkward Christmas party complete with an alcoholic witch, some Lindsay Lohan perfume, warts, a bloody Santa, a Lionel Ritchie/Diana Ross duet, burnt dinner, some very unexpected skirt chasing, and, of course, the world’s worst Christmas gift, Keep the Yuletide Gay ultimately reminds us what it means to be a friend.
