Like the chalk line down the middle of feuding siblings’ bedroom floors, the line between comedy and tragedy is thin and can lead to melodramatic outbursts if crossed by mistake.

Every Christmas Story Ever Told (and then some!) delivers an uproarious, backhanded interpretation of conventional holiday traditions. Since making its debut in 2003, the side-splitting Yuletide onslaught has spurred a nationwide following, described by the Los Angeles Times as a “winking assault on virtually every secular seasonal classic since Charles Dickens.” Attendees enjoy VIP views as Christmas icons such as Frosty, Rudolph, and Ayn Rand enter the show’s crosshairs and versatile cast members tickle funny bones with a blitz on worldwide Christmas customs, seasonal carols, and pop-culture mainstays. An original score backs the performance, adding an extra dose of originality and white-bearded quarter notes to a whirlwind of topical amusement. Meanwhile, waiters whisk away the drink tickets of tables of four and leave beer, wine, or soft drinks in their place.
