Special  
Theatre of NOTE Special
 
How could it miss? It was riding the coattails of what was at that point the most popular movie of all time. It featured appearances by cast members, including Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher. It had great guest stars like Bea Arthur, Harvey Korman, Art Carney and (in holographic form) Jefferson Starship and Diahann Carroll. There was even a cartoon sequence (the first appearance of Boba Fett). The narrative involved the celebration of the Wookiee holiday Life Day (because there’s no Christmas in Space), as Chewie’s family wants to celebrate despite the intrusion of Imperial Storm Troopers. What could possibly go wrong? Everything.
   
Steambath  
Odyssey Theatre Ensemble Steambath
 
This play presents the afterlife as a steambath, in which recently deceased souls (who may not in every case realize that they're dead) continue to obsess about the same petty concerns that obsessed them in their lives. Ultimately, they are cast into another room offstage which is represented by a dark void by God, the steambath's Puerto Rican attendant and with the help of his assistant Gottlieb. In the play, the new arrival Tandy at first refuses to accept what's happened, and when he finally does, he pleads to be allowed to return to his life. Steambath was controversial when first produced for its obscene language, its satirical take on religion and some brief nudity. Now you can catch it on the stage of the Odyssey Theatre in Los Angeles.
   
Sugar Plum Fairy  
Skylight Theatre Sugar Plum Fairy
 
This offbeat and thoroughly original holiday treat offers festive cheer while engaging audiences to participate (think G-rated “Rocky Horror” fun). Appropriate for ages 8 to 80, NPR’s Sandra Tsing Loh's Sugar Plum Fairy tells the story of a 12 year-old girl who dreams of dancing the lead in The Nutcracker. Audiences are encouraged to come decked out in ugly holiday sweaters, tutus, and Hanukah hats and be prepared to join in the 75 minutes of madcap merriment. Bart De Lorenzo directs and Sandra Tsing Loh stars along with Tony Abatemarco and Shannon Holt.
   
Tales of King Arthur  
Atwater Village Theatre Tales of King Arthur
 
The heroes of the Round Table are dead and gone. The divided kingdoms turn to a reclusive princess in the barren islands of northern Scotland, the last survivor of the royal line, to take power and to lead Britain out of darkness. Her name is Clarissant. Her mother, Morgause, was King Arthur’s sister and a wicked sorceress whose power continues to choke Camelot from beyond the grave. Rather than wear the crown offered to her, Clarissant uses the magic of her ancestors to try desperately to bring back the golden days when her brothers lived to serve the great King Arthur. Is it truly her destiny to rule Britain? Or the final step in her mother’s curse?
   
The Tony Martini Variety Hour  
Three Clubs The Tony Martini Variety Hour
 
Everyone is talking about The Tony Martini Variety Hour, a monthly journey into the world of ex-Vegas lounge legend Tony Martini (local comedy favorite Mark Fite). With his misfit collection of friends, a couple of top notch musicians, and a roster of amazing A-list specialty acts that alternate each month, each performance is a thoroughly entertaining evening of variety and laughs. Tony may no longer be at the top of his game but he’s still got a fresh drink and a pocketful of ‘vitamins’ to fuel the fire in his lounge loving heart.

Trump in Space  
Second City Trump in Space

Trump, races to find humanity a new planet because the earth blew up! Running time is one hour.
   
Vendetta Chrome  
The Lex Theatre Vendetta Chrome
 
Vendetta, a late bloomer at a Victorian girls' school, must save her friends and family from a legacy of trouble -- and it's all in the dance moves. In the West Coast premiere of Sylvan Oswald's melodrama-farce, spirited movement sequences take a female and nonbinary cast through the lightness and the darkness of today’s feminist rage. Said Variety, “Vendetta Chrome is a saucy spoof on the inane mannerisms of Victorian education for young ladies that has a pointed message.”

El Portal Theatre The Year Without A Santana Clause
 
Join the Troubadour Theatre Company for this year's holiday extravaganza: The Year Without a Santana Claus.

It’s no wonder the ol’ guy can’t be “Everybody’s Everything.” One thing’s for certain, Santa’s in need of a serious vacay. Maybe he’ll vacation on Mars and attend an “Interplanetary Party.” Or maybe he’ll play it “Smooth” and lay low down south in Cabo. Will the Heatmeiser tell his brother the Snowmeiser to change his “Evil Ways?” Will Santa say “Hey, Mrs. Claus, ‘Why Don’t You and I’ get together and take a snowboarding lesson?” Will the Troubies come to the rescue and save Christmas? This holiday season, bring the familia to North Hollywood’s El Portal Theatre to party and laugh “Into the Night.”
