The Athena Cats, a collective of Southern California female playwrights and directors, presents a madcap romantic comedy that's a perfect escape for the holidays. Liberal Sara and right-winger Jefferson are polar opposites about everything — except their love and devotion for their two, newly deceased, filthy-rich best friends. Trapped by the time constraints of their friends' will, the two are forced to spend the next 16 days, 21 hours, and 32 minutes together, scattering ashes across Europe. Whether they make it or not, the audience is in for a bumpy and very funny ride.
Show begins when the director asks the audience to suggest a popular film title and then the cast, right there on the spot, improvise the "black version" of that film complete with its improvised soundtrack, dance numbers, DVD extras, audition reels & more.
The Black Version is a completely improvised show that started at The Groundlings Theatre in LA in 2010 to sold out crowds and great reviews. Rolling Stone magazine calls the show "Hot" and the cast a "Comedic A-Team", LA Weekly says the show is "Red Hot" and "Scores more than it's share of belly laughs" while the LA Times calls the show "A Winner"!
Return of the UN-Holiday tradition
We just couldn't shut them up…so for the 14th straight year, accusations, rumors, and all-out attacks are (still) flying fast and furious around the toy shop. Hear the truth straight from the reindeer who know Santa best. When a doe says "no," she means "no."
WARNING!! This show contains FOUL-MOUTHED REINDEER and very inappropriate ADULT HUMOR! Definitely no kids or anyone who doesn't want to see the dark side of Santa Claus, Mrs. Claus, and the North Pole!
If you loved Barbara Minkus in Picon Pie and Funny, You Don't Look Like a Grandmother, you'll adore her in this funny, poignant and powerful evening of theater.

Live Rude Girls is an all-female sketch comedy revue that carefully considers the question of whether women can be funny, takes the paper the question was written on, tears it up, pours gasoline all over it, and uses it to start a dumpster fire protesting the defunding of Planned Parenthood. The cast fearlessly tackles topics like body shaming, street harassment, and the near-constant barrage of dick pics in this no-holds-barred satirical view on the female experience. The cast of Live Rude Girls has been described as "shrill," "prettier if they smiled," and "2/10: Would Not Bang."
