Long before it was a book, even before it was a poem, The Iliad was one heck of a story, a rollicking, raunchy and altogether enthralling tale that people couldn't get out of their heads. Now co-creators Lisa Peterson (Obie-winning director) and Denis O'Hare (Tony-winning actor) have recaptured the spirit of the early epic in An Iliad, a 90 minute one-man show. In this celebration of storytelling, Jackson Davis plays the Poet, who speaks directly to the audience, bringing to life the struggle between Achilles and Hector over the beautiful Helen, and the resulting battle and fall of Troy. Personal, funny, deeply relevant, this play has been dubbed a "masterpiece" by the Chicago Tribune. Learn More

Went to the 2pm Sunday showing and had a great time. The three actors are very talented and engaging, Kevin with his radio announcer voice, Martin with his facial expressions and Colin with his George Constanza dry, droll humor. The first half, they go through the litany of BHC, beloved holiday classic movies and shows, you will recognize them all. Then the second half, they go through both It's a Wonderful Life and A Christmas Carol at the same time. Then they end the show with a song of our old fave holiday songs. Was a little slow in some parts and engaging audience participation in others. Was a fun afternoon.

Quotes & Highlights
“The actors in this play were so funny, their timing so impeccably perfect, that they literally killed three-quarters of the audience, whose bodies have already been donated to science for the study of comedy’s lethal effects.”—Metro
Every Christmas Story Ever Told was a Goldstar ROAR award winner in 2008.
Join San Jose Stage Company as they once again tackle this fast-moving, irreverent comedy that takes holiday cheer to the extreme! Every Christmas Story Ever Told is a fond and furious look at the holiday classics and traditions we all remember, and some we would like to forget. From a non-religious version of_ Silent Night_ to a non-copyrighted version of Rudolph, the Red-nosed Reindeer—renamed Gustav the Green-nosed Reingoat—as well as tributes to Frosty the Snowman, The Grinch and It’s A Wonderful Life, no pop culture holiday icon is spared in this whirlwind of holiday merriment.
