Inside Threshold Repertory Theatre's intimate venue, 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, garnering praise from the Los Angeles Times as a "winking assault on virtually every secular seasonal classic since Charles Dickens." As Christmas icons such as Frosty, Rudolph, and Ayn Rand enter the show's crosshairs, 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.
