Christmas Bingo: It's a Ho-Ho-Holy Night! Closing (Theater and Galleries) The Short List (Theater)

When: Fridays-Sundays. Continues through Jan. 4 2015

Vicki Quade of Late Night Catechism fame allows no "lapsed Catholics" in her classroom; in her eyes there are just baptized followers of varying degrees of practice, heathens, and whatever Lutherans are. As her alter ego Sister Mary Margaret O'Brien, Quade calls short games of bingo between prepared bits of gentle comedy and, more often than not, stream-of-consciousness musings on topics like Black Friday, Tom Cruise, and the feminist subtext of A Miracle on 34th Street. Close to two hours is a long time to spend competing for prizes like old VHS tapes, but Quade makes the whole experience genuinely warm and inviting—even if Sister Mary Margaret isn't. —Dan Jakes
