New York



Around this time of year, New Yorkers are bombarded with all types of adaptations of The Nutcracker, some traditional, some not so much. Falling into the latter category is Chris March’s Butt-Cracker Suite!, starring the Project Runway season four contestant in a tale, set in a trailer park, complete with dancing bowling pins, tacky Christmas sweaters, and plenty of Spam. No stranger to campy holiday shows (he was nominated for a Drama Desk Award in 2002 for his costumes in Christmas With the Crawfords), March promises a night of irreverent tunes, outrageous getups, and a beer-can chorus line. What more could you ask for?

Saturdays, 10:30 p.m.; Tuesdays-Sundays, 8:30 p.m.; Sundays, 4 p.m. Starts: Nov. 24. Continues through Dec. 29, 2012
