The Great Annoyance Melodrama and Vaudeville Revue Member Picks Agenda The Short List (Theater) Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Sundays. Continues through Dec. 27 2015

Performing family-friendly fare in a venue like Annoyance Theater—where "Suck my cok" [sic] is a Thought of the Day on the chalk menu at the bar—must be like working with one hand tied behind your back. C.J. Tuor's goofy production, though, succeeds in capitalizing on the antics of a cartoonish, physical cast of ten. Music by Robbie Ellis underscores a mustachioed villain's attempt to rig a holiday competition for the tallest tree in town. There are some original send-ups of vaudeville tropes, but over the course of two acts even the youngest viewers may find the humor meriting more smiles than laughs. —Dan Jakes
