Schmaltzy comic Murray Hill gets imaginative this holiday season for his annual pageant, A Murray Little Christmas. The show becomes a road trip gone awry when Murray loads his performer friends into a Winnebago headed for his beloved homeland, the Catskills—without checking the fuel gauge. When they run of out gas, they have to celebrate Christmas right there in the Borscht Belt's surrounding woods. The gang takes advantage of the situation by doing The Nutcracker on ice—"with tights and everything," says Hill. Those scantily clad folks include burlesquer Dirty Martini, the Trachtenburg Family Slideshow Players, Bridget Everett, and Moisty the Snowman.
