For just shy of a decade, the team behind Homo for the Holidays has been producing one of the most consistently memorable holiday shows in Seattle. BenDeLaCreme, Kitten LaRue and Lou Henry Hoover blend sharp wit, burlesque and lots of heart along with an evolving cast, year by year. They also change up the plot. In this year’s production, Santa’s term has ended and he has been replaced by…a less than ideal successor.
What is consistent over the years is an emphasis on how one builds a chosen family. When estrangements (or just a general disdain for holiday travel) can make Christmas a lonely time, it’s a message that resonates for many people. Also, the show is just hysterically funny. Don your gay apparel and prance to the Oddfellows Building. We highly recommend it.
