Mother Superior's Ho-Ho-Holy Night The Short List (Theater) Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Saturdays, Sundays. Continues through Jan. 3 2010

This one-woman show created by Vicki Quade may give parochial-school graduates comedic flashbacks. Kathleen Puls Andrade plays Mother Superior, a no-nonsense nun helping Saint Gabriel's church put on a Vatican-worthy holiday pageant. While spouting little-known facts about the origins of Father Christmas and what really happened at the Nativity, she dishes out discipline to her cowering audience. Luckily, she says, as she sends someone to stand in the corner, she forgot her ruler at home. The show's humor depends on a participatory audience, so pray for a gum-chewing, back-talking, original-sin loving crowd. --Marissa Oberlander
