"Fasten your seatbelts; it’s going to be a bumpy night."
In an uproariously hilarious twist, Austin fave Rob Nash plays classic dead movie divas portraying the classic Dickens characters: Bette Davis as Scrooge, Mae West as Nephew Scrooge, Katharine Hepburn as Bob Crachit, Joan Crawford as Jacob Marley, Vivian Leigh as the Ghost of Christmas Past, Humphrey Bogart as Belle, Judy Garland as the Ghost of Christmas Present, Cary Grant as Mrs. Crachit, Marilyn Monroe as Tiny Tim. Plus cameos by Clara Bow, W.C. Fields, Shirley Temple, Abbot and Costello, Ingrid Bergman, the 3 Stooges, Laurel and Hardy, and the Marx Brothers and Peter Lori. And a surprise diva as the Ghost of Christmas Future—she’ll be the only living diva in the cast.
Come see Rob splicing Dickens with old school Hollywood classics like: My Little Chickadee, Auntie Mame, Mommie Dearest, Hush, Hush Sweet Charlotte, All About Eve, Whatever Happened to Baby Jane, The Women, Gone with the Wind, Casablanca, To Have and to Have Not, The Wizard of Oz, The Seven Year Itch, Arsenic and Old Lace The Maltese Falcon and more. No you don’t have to be familiar with all or even any of the movies whose classic lines show up in an evening of Rob Nash’s fabulously entertaining and Christmas classic, but it wouldn't hurt.
