It’s Christmas Eve in Marquette and cantankerous bar owner Gunner Johnson gets in an argument with his wife Clara and tells her “he’s skipping
Christmas!” After storming out of the bar he snowmobiles across the lake, falls through the ice and goes into a coma. He comes back in his dreams where he is visited by folk legend, Sven Yorgenson who is in turn, the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future.
This hilarious spoof of Charles Dickens’ classic tale A Christmas Carol is sure to delight with the quirks and musical numbers.
Vertigo Theatrics is located at 755 S. Saginaw St., in the old Masonic Lodge in downtown Flint. Details: Call 810-239-7469 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. — G.G. Dark comedy at UM-Flint
FLINT — The University of Michigan-Flint’s Department of Theatre and Dance presents playwright Stephen Adly Guirgis’ Our Lady of 121st Street, Nov. 18-20, at the UM-Flint Theatre, 303 E. Kearsley St., Flint.
Friday and Saturday performances begin at 7:30 p.m. with Sunday matinee at 2 p.m. Tickets are $10 general admission and $8 for students, alumni, seniors, faculty and staff.
This gritty, dark comedy opens with mourners gathering at the Ortiz Funeral Home in Spanish Harlem to pay their final respects to the neighborhood’s ‘Lady’, Sister Rose. The venerable nun and pillar of the community is gone — literally. Someone has stolen her body, and this physical absence challenges the characters to address internal conflicts and make peace with their varied pasts so they may move forward.
Due to content, this play is recommended for ages 18 and above.
