We hope you enjoy our holiday-themed section "The Truth About Christmas" and enjoy the season in whatever way or for whatever reasons you and yours do.

Forget about the spontaneous moment of lust that scares up the sex-drive ghosts of Christmas Past.

Every Christmas Story Ever Told (Review)

Wild and crazy time in the Arnold's courtyard

0 Comments · Friday, December 19, 2008
If you're looking for a traditional holiday entertainment, be forewarned: This performance has more in common with wild and crazy sketch comedy than it does with a performance of a full-length Christmas play.

I'm a sucker for good holiday music. And by "good" I mean "weird." The thing is, the closer the holidays get the smaller my bank account seems to be — especially given the economic crisis.   

Holiday Shows Are Cause for Hope

0 Comments · Wednesday, December 10, 2008
In my review of the Playhouse's 'A Christmas Carol,' I suggest that Charles Dickens' social conscience, outraged in 1843 by the evils of the Industrial Revolution and greedy business operators, seems quite timely in 2008 amid the evils of unfettered financial mismanagement and greedy business operators. Have we made any progress? Come January there will be a change in our nation's leadership, after all, and that's certainly cause for hope.
