The five-member cast of Fruitcakes! (A very special holiday special) takes the show’s music very, very seriously — but Tiny Tim, the Grinch, Rudolph and other Christmas characters all get the send-up treatment. A wonderful mix of singers, actors and comedians, the cast delivers one of the most enjoyable holiday productions in town.
Colton Berry sings a rocking version of "Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen," while Luke Wrobel delivers an over-the-top "White Christmas." Brad Scarborough gives audiences a soulful, heart-felt rendition of "Please Come Home for Christmas," and the whole cast comes together for a tender "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas."
Great voices, classic songs, some funny jokes — what else do you want for Christmas? 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 2 p.m. Sundays. Through January 15. The Music Box Theater, 2623 Colquitt. For information, call 713-522-7722 or visit www.themusicboxtheater.com. $25 to $35.
