Naughty v. Nice: 5 Hot Holiday Plays for NYC Grown-Ups


The Show: Naked Holidays When and Where: December 10 -19 at Ace of Clubs Theater, $20/$15 for students How Nice: Produced by EndTimes Productions, Naked Holidays bills itself as a “darkly comic Yuletide bacchanalia.” According to The New York Times, last year’s iteration contained the funniest adult-themed holiday skit of the year. How Naughty: Reindeer plot the murder of Rudolph and a hooker works the North Pole. Also, there will be eggnog. (Photo by Kaitlin Dale)

The Show: Jackie Beat’s All You Can Eat Christmas When and Where: December 16 -19 at the Laurie Beechman Theater, $20/ $15 drink minimum How Nice: Drag sensation Jackie Beat credits her illustrious career as beginning with her role as Santa Claus in a kindergarten pageant, so it’s only fitting that her adult-themed holiday show has played to sold out houses for over a decade. How Naughty: Favorite Jackie Beat numbers include “Sleigh Ride in Leather With You,”  “Cancer Don’t Care That it’s Christmas,” and “Santa’s Baby,” which tells of Kris Kringle’s illegitimate kids.

The Show: Nutcracker Rouge When and Where: December 10 – January 9 at the 303 Bond Theatre, $25-40 How Nice: Created by Austin McCormick, whose neo-Baroque troupe Company XVI creates spellbinding works of dance theater, Nutcracker Rouge is an erotic take on the traditional Christmas ballet. How Naughty: This is one sexy Nutcracker, replete with nudity. No one under 16 will be admitted.

The Show: Lonesome Winter When and Where: UNDER St. Marks, December 2 -19, $18 How Nice: Written by clever downtown playwrights Joshua Conkel and Megan Hill, Lonesome Winter features Hill as lonely cat lady; Conkel plays her angry cat. How Naughty: According to press materials, this Christmas comedy makes fun of Cathy comics. Whoa.

The Show: A Very Mary Christmas 2 You When and Where: December 11 at the Laurie Beechman Theater, $20/ $15 drink minimum How Nice: A Very Mary Christmas 2 You stars Mimi Imfurst (RuPaul’s Drag Race) as the Virgin Mother. The fifth annual installment of this heralded holiday tradition promises to reveal “a deep, dark secret,” which the Virgin has harbored for over 2,000 years. How Naughty: The Catholic Advocacy Coalition deemed Mimi Imfurst’s Virgin Mary series “worse than the sin of abortion.” What more need be said?
