You haven't seen Dickens' A Christmas Carol until you've seen it filtered through the down-home, slightly twisted lens of Cora Values, a waitress and raconteur at the Gas 'N' Gulp truck-stop in Texas. In Christmas Corral, this sweetly acerbic drag creation of San Francisco actor Sean Owens is intent on reconstructing Dickens' famous Yuletide tale, despite having lost several of the pages in the fat fryer. To compensate, she calls on her devoted regulars to help fill in the gaps, including the audience, resulting in an irreverent rural holiday skewering replete with songs, jokes, special guest stars and even a cooking segment. Live music, pageantry and plenty of dramatic license abound in the uproarious Christmas Corral at Oasis.
