Culture Shock

Infinity Sleigh Bells

Miss Mary Christmas 2012
Miss Mary Christmas 2012

I double-dog dare you to go all the way in—into the frostbitten, red-and-green vortex of the winter holidays. Actors, dancers, musicians and queens around town beckon from beneath the mistletoe. (I call the queens!)

Multiple Personality Disorder—Take a familiar trip through Ebenezer Scrooge's identity crisis at The Filling Station (1024 Fourth Street SW). But in this version—it’s a Christmas miracle!—one man performs all of the parts. John Hardy takes the stage Thursdays through Sundays until Dec. 16. Get your tickets at

Radio Theater Lives—Video didn’t kill anyone. Head over to Adobe Theatre in the North Valley (9813 Fourth Street NW) and watch actors bring off live broadcasts of A Christmas Carol. Performances are Fridays through Sundays through Dec. 16. Call 898-9222 for tickets and times.

“Who the hell can concentrate on the true meaning of Christmas in all this duct tape!?!”

The Dolls

Sugar and Spice—Drag troupe The Dolls is proffering what promises to be a nice and naughty seasonal production, Miss Mary Christmas 2012. "Who the hell can concentrate on the true meaning of Christmas in all this duct tape!?!" they wonder. (A fair question in this patched-together economy.) The show runs weekends through Dec. 23 at Aux Dog (3100 Monte Vista). Go to

You Want the Moon?—What's a feast of Yuletide delight without a ladleful of ennui? Watch George Bailey struggle through his obligatory life, his dreams just so much detritus, until a guardian angel awakens him to his good fortune. It's A Wonderful Life is playing at Albuquerque’s (Not So) Little Theatre (224 San Pasquale SW) right up until Christmas Eve. Tickets and showtimes can be found at

Aw, Nuts—If you missed The Nutcracker on the Rocks from Keshet or The Nutcracker from the New Mexico Ballet Company, have no fear: Your shells can still be sufficiently fractured. The Figueroa Project ditched the traditional Victorian mansion setting and stirred some New Mexico kick into the tale. This is a story of the Pachecos, and leading lady Clara has become Maria. Kids from Cochiti Pueblo are part of the show, along with elements of Ballet Folklorico and southwestern snakes. Live music is provided by the Figueroa orchestra. The localized piñoncrusher makes its way to the National Hispanic Cultural Center on Friday, Dec. 21, and stays through Christmas Eve. Get your tickets at
