A Klingon Christmas Carol The Short List (Theater) Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Thursdays-Sundays. Continues through Dec. 31 2011

If you're trekkie enough to know what the T in Captain James T. Kirk stands for, this is for you. Commedia Beauregard delivers Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol, translated into the Klingon language and suffused with Klingon values exactly as advertised. Scrooge substitute SQuja is visited by three visions who help him become the good, warlike Klingon he's avoided being his entire life. Can he change his Romulan ways and find his place in battle? With full headpieces and long fight scenes, this production takes the Klingon way seriously—to its detriment. While it may please Star Trek fanatics, the show isn't for those of us who'd rather laugh at a Klingon than grunt with him. —Joshua Sumner
