    The Dionysium: History Is Made to Seem Unfair

    For this latest convocation of wine-fueled intellectual hijinks, LB Deyo and Buzz Moran have engaged the participation of those celebrated Rude Mechs, who will offer a preview of their new theatrework about The Impeachment of the Worst President in U.S. History. Also, Marc Pouhé re-enacts a speech by Frederick Douglass, Corey Brettschneider talks about the presidential oath of office, and Silky Shoemaker performs Ronald Reagan apologizing for all the shitty things he did. And, of course, the usual brainy badinage and toasts to creativity throughout the show – all abetted by the mighty keyboard calisthenics of that Graham Reynolds.
    Wed., Dec. 5, 7pm. $10.

      A Christmas Carol

      This ZACH Theatre adaptation of the Dickens classic, directed by Abe Reybold and starring the estimable Jaston Williams, is "a musical sleigh ride through rhythm and time, infusing the traditional Victorian story with a score that spans all genres and eras." It's riotously redolent of the ghosts of Motown past, but of course you know the basic Ebenezer of this thing: crotchety, cratchity, creepy, and (ultimately) heartwarming. And, what's that? You think there's an awful lot of Dickens going on in town lately? Our Robert Faires tells you why.
      Through Dec. 30. Wed.-Fri., 7:30pm; Sat., 2:30 & 7:30pm; Sun., 2:30pm. $25 and up.
