presented by ACTLab and Dina Martina
Dates: Dec 6 – 24, 2018
Running Time: Approximately 80 minutes, with one intermission.
Location: Falls Theatre
The holiday season will be extra special this year, as the beloved comic genius Dina Martina blankets ACTLab in yuletide merriment. Miss Martina (a.k.a. “The Second Lady of Entertainment”) will be joined by noted accompanist and Stranger Genius Award-winner, Chris Jeffries, in bringing her famed holiday train wreck of a show to the ACTLab stage for the first time since Martina began the tradition at Seattle’s Re-bar over twenty years ago.
Like all of Martina’s shows, this treasured Seattle holiday tradition promises to be a truly wondrous and surreal blend of questionable song, unnecessary dance, overburdened costumes, and side-splitting video. Walk, don’t run, to buy tickets!
