Scrooge in Rouge

Ricky Graham, Jeff Roberson (aka Varla Jean Merman), Yvette Hargis and Jefferson Turner reprise their now-annual holiday romp Scrooge in Rouge. The British music hall-style drama set in Dickensian times features a motley crew of players setting out to stage A Christmas Carol. When most of the company falls ill, the handful left standing decide the show must go on — with two of them divvying up most of the roles. Graham and Roberson vamp, cross-dress and roar through 20 songs in the campy show. Turner accompanies them on piano. Tickets $30 (includes $5 drink credit). — Will Coviello
