Not your typical Holiday perfromance. Thank the gods.

Weimar Holiday
Shotgun serves up a visceral Christmas Cabaret.

Ah, the holiday theater season. Time for familiar music, wholesome cheer, nudity, politics, simulated sex, and dripping blood. At least at the Ashby Playhouse, where the Shotgun Players once again resist the Dickensian compulsion by staging Masteroff, Kander, and Ebb's debauched Cabaret through the end of the year.

There's plenty of glitter; it just happens to be attached to the scantily-dressed Kit Kat Girls wriggling through the audience before the show starts, sitting on laps, practicing their handstands on the small stage so their frilly panties show. And there's certainly holiday cheer in the lobby, if you count it being done up in an overblown brothelesque style. In fact, the whole show has production values. Cabaret opens on a New Year's Eve in a seedy Berlin nightclub, and it's completely tricked out, with Valera Coble's fancy costumes on Sally, the EmCee, and the Kit Kat Girls.
