Every year, I see a lot of *nice* holiday shows. And maybe just one *naughty* one!
Hell in a Handbag Productions presents Rudolph the Red-Hosed Reindeer. Playwright David Cerda takes the beloved children’s classic “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” and slaps some ruffled red panties on it. It’s a little familiar and a whole lot funny. There are the traditional; Donner and his wife, Sam the Snowman, and Herbie the Elf. Then, there are the timeless characters with a twist…twisted to hysterical perversion. Rudolph is a transvestite. Santa is a perv. Mrs. Claus is a booze-hag. The elves are circuit slaves. This is not your normal Christmas story. It’s the abnormal one! Rudolph the Red-Hosed Reindeer struts its raunchy, dirty underwear with campy pride. Read the rest of review at Chicago Theater Beat.
