A Christmas Cabaret

Sat., Dec. 16, 2 p.m.
phone 440-366-4040

Before you can say “Sleighride,” TMTP is back with their annual holiday treat! The show isn’t complete until everyone joins in on “White Christmas”—but that’s just one of several dozen songs that appeal to every generation. The hits range from “Winter Wonderland,” “Let it Snow” and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” to Irving Berlin’s 101-year-old salute to Santa Claus and the inevitable tributes to Rudolph, Frosty and that mean one, Mr. Grinch. Featuring TMTP artistic director Bill Rudman, music director Nancy Maier, Joe Monaghan, and Sandra Simon. $20 for Adults, $10 for Children

A Christmas Carol

Wed., Dec. 20

Charles Dickens was a hell of a writer, but he could be a tad verbose. So it's convenient that there have been so many great stage and screen versions of his classic ghost story. One of them — required viewing for anyone with a Netflix membership — is the 1951 movie starring Alastair Sim as a Scrooge for all eternity. And the other is this Great Lakes Shakespeare Festival production, which never fails to engage and delight. Framed cozily as a story within a story in this Gerald Freedman adaptation, the production really comes alive once the ghost of Jacob Marley appears, dragging his chains and creaking eerily with every movement. This annual tribute to knee-jerk liberal sentiments, like compassion for the downtrodden, is always a must-see, whether you've seen it before or not. Tonight's performance takes place at 7:30 at the Ohio Theatre. Tickets are $28 to $75. Performances continue through Saturday. (Christine Howey)

A Christmas Carol

A Christmas Story

Wed., Dec. 20

A Christmas Story, a near-genius piece of American reminiscence, is so period-perfect and charming that the squishy sentimentality (of which there is plenty) never leads to saccharine reflux. Philip Grecian is listed as the playwright, but everyone understands that the bulk of insights and telling detail comes from the mind of Jean Shepherd, who wrote the original story, co-authored the movie, and narrated the flick in his distinctive, triple-wry voice. The Cleveland Play House's production of Story rides a two-hour wave of intricate details to unerringly establish the period and to help even the youngest patrons make the leap back to a time before televisions were omnipresent and cowboy hero Red Ryder was king of the wireless. See it tonight at 7:30 at the Allen Theatre. Performances continue through Saturday. Tickets are $25 to $110. (Howey)

On Your Feet

Wed., Dec. 20

Directed by Tony Award winner Jerry Mitchell (Kinky Boots) and featuring choreography by Olivier Award winner Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys), the musical On Your Feet tells the story of Emilio and Gloria Estefan's journey to America to become pop music sensations. Tonight's show takes place at 7:30 at Connor Palace; performances continue through Saturday. Tickets are $29 to $109. (Niesel)
