Stark Naked Theatre Company presents Ho Ho Humbug
Stark Naked Theatre Company presents its first-ever holiday production with the world premiere of Ho Ho Humbug, a hilarious Christmas-themed comedy produced in association with Third Coast Creative. A festive tale written by and starring New York City-based playwright and actor Scott Burkell, Ho Ho Humbug is directed by Philip Lehl and features a strong ensemble cast that includes Houston favorite Kim Tobin-Lehl and original music by award-winning composer Paul Loesel.
Ho Ho Humbug is the semi-autobiographical story of a disillusioned and acerbic middle-aged New Yorker who unexpectedly finds himself dressed in a red velvet costume — with beard — and awash in a sea of candy canes, artificial snow and crying babies.
Is this sardonic Santa capable of suppressing his contempt for the season long enough to collect a paycheck? Or could Macy's Santaland actually make a believer out of its resident cynic?
