After the show, check out Cafe Stritch. Its two blocks from the theater. A live band usually plays til midnight. They make good strong drinks, and there are usually tables available at that time. They also serve coffee for you non-alcoholic types.

While I thought the play was funny and entertaining, I think I was most impressed by the venue. I'd never been to this theatre before, it was small and intimate, and the perfect place for this play!

Great theater. We sat in the last row in the center and had a great view. Loved the second half, especially the closing song. Women's bathroom quite small.

The 3 performers were very entertaining. They played out all of the Christmas carols roles very well. Very professional actors and the song at the end was the best. I bought these tickets for my husband and he enjoyed it.

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.

Description

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.
