About this show

Commissioned by the City Theatre in Pittsburgh in 2002, outrageous playwright Christopher Durang turns the "sickeningly sweet" traditional "holiday show" on its head in Mrs. Bob Cratchit's Wild Christmas Binge. Without ruining all the twists and turns of this frenetic romp, ask yourself: What if Scrooge was visited by a Ghost of Christmas who couldn't keep her magic from malfunctioning? What if Mrs. Bob Cratchit actually despised her life? How would a humbug cope if planted in The Gift of the Magi, It's a Wonderful Life or Touched by an Angel? Mrs. Bob offers holiday hilarity that is certain to surprise, and will make you wonder how much rum is in your Eggnog. BRT favorite Jo Twiss plays the title role in this brash Holiday alternative. Additional Schedule Information: Preview performances will be "Pay What You Can" at the BRT Box Office the night of the show, a half hour prior to show time. These tickets are only available to walk-up patrons on a first come-first served basis. Tickets may also be bought in advance for preview performances at the normal price of $29.00. Opening Night performances include a post-show buffet and reception with the cast, creative team and BRT staff in the lobby at no additional charge.
