Maul Santa: The Musical Closing (Theater and Galleries) The Short List (Theater)

When: Fridays, Saturdays. Continues through Dec. 19 2015

There's something about zombies that, for better or worse, endures as an easy reference point for parodies and adaptations of all sorts across all mediums. This collaboration between We Are Productions and Public House Theatre, directed by Ricky W. Glore, stretches the title pun out to a Dawn of the Dead-inspired musical in which Santa and company fend off brain-eating ghouls. J. Sebastian Fabal's score has a handful of clever hooks and earwormy bits, but that and a charismatic cast aren't enough to sustain the joke even for the short running time. An intermission inexplicably just 35 minutes in does little to bolster a sense the show's quite finished. —Dan Jakes
