Arts West has good concession offerings (some which benefit a local charity). Though the venue is surrounded by tons of great food options - including Talarico's Pizza, which has tasty 14" slices of pizza!

Description

The story begins with Brian reading the opening narrative of his umpteenth production of A Christmas Carol, when Justin and Nick start to rebel. “Don’t get me wrong, Christmas Carol’s a great story. Fezziwig, redemption, God bless us everyone, Nice ghost, Fat ghost, Scary ghost … but honestly, I’m just doing this ‘cause I need the insurance.” Reluctantly, Brian follows along as the actors launch themselves, and the audience, into a full-scale re-examination of all shows holiday, from Rudolph (with a slight adjustment for copyright issues) to It’s a Wonderful Life (in a second-act mash up that will blow your mind). Traditions from around the world (some more questionable than others) and a finale that includes “Every Carol Ever Sung,” will leave you fully holiday-satisfied, with nothing left to do but wrap those presents and drink that nog. 

By Michael Carleton, James FitzGerald and John K. Alvarez.
