Friday, November 25 | Dina Martina Christmas Show 2011 – Sleigh bells ring; are you listening? They’re heralding the arrival of the 61st annual Dina Martina Christmas Show! Unwittingly hilarious and wonderfully bizarre, Dina Martina is the chanteuse with the leastest; the dancer with the hunchfront; the childlike lady who, year after year, is the holiday gift that truly keeps on giving. A perennial favorite of the likes of John Waters, Margaret Cho, Matt Stone and Graham Norton, Miss Martina’s shows have long been a favorite holiday tradition for those who want something other than the usual holiday fare.
Friday, November 25 | Proof by David Auburn – Blank Stage Theater presents their inaugural production of Proof by David Auburn. The winner of the 2001 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award for Best Play, Proof follows a woman struggling through her grief from the death of her father, a mathematical genius who was profoundly mentally ill. With the interference of her practical sister and one of her father’s former students, she considers whether she has inherited his genius or his madness. Proof is a play that entertains and challenges audiences, with characters that are smart, complex, and often surprising.
