The David Bowie Hepzikat Funky Velvet Flarney Solstice Spectacular, Live . . . From Space! (David Bowie's Christmas Special 1977 Network Edit) Closing (Theater and Galleries) Member Picks The Short List (Theater)

When: Fridays, Saturdays. Continues through Dec. 19 2009

Ostensibly jumping off from David Bowie's surreal appearance on a 1977 Bing Crosby Christmas special, this high-concept parody from New Millennium Theatre imagines Bowie with his own holiday show, featuring a gaggle of androgynous glam rockers. Sam Quinn is unconvincing as Bowie, except when singing, and the variety format smells like an excuse for incarnating the popular Youtube video that uses the magic of splicing to depict Bowie and Freddy Mercury singing "Under Pressure" together in concert. Writer-director Steven Attanasie doesn't bother much with narrative or historical accuracy, filling the evening with the stardust of musical numbers and time-crumpling cultural references. Crosby's professed fondness for the Circle Jerks is an anachronism that may absolve all the others. --Keith Griffith
