Thursday To-Do: "Pagans on Bobsleds XIX: The Spawn of Santa"

Posted By on Thu, Dec 9, 2010 at 4:54 AM


8 p.m., Public Theater. $8-$10.

It's a seasonal tradition almost two decades old. Red Octopus Theater, Arkansas's longest-tenured sketch comedy group (old enough to vote and buy porn this year!), pokes fun at the holidays with a revue it calls "Pagans on Bobsleds." This year's edition, number 19, features seven new faces in the cast. Longtime Octopi Josh Doering, offered a preview: "The 3 Wise Men (as portrayed by Sylvester Stallone, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Mickey Rourke and Frankenstein for some reason) are packing heat in 'The Magi-ables.' Santa's elves share their skin-care regimen in 'Palm Balm.' And Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh are given the Perfume Commercial treatment." Doering also promises plenty of songs, including "The All-Nut Choir," "The Pudding Choir," "Gleeful Grilling" and, the theme song, "Pagans on Bobsleds." And that's just scratching the surface. The performance continues through Saturday; same time and price every night.

  • Janet Jackson at Verizon Arena: A Review

    Her dance abilities had clearly diminished, as they naturally would over two decades. I mean, she's 50. And has a newborn. I get it, but it's like they're grasping at recreating 20 year-old Janet instead of focusing on what makes 50 year-old Janet amazing, and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t terribly disappointed.
