After 27 years in the stand-up world, Westword‘s “Best Comedy Guru” of 2011 is still at it. This Christmas season, Deacon Gray returns to the stage with a new twist on Tchaikovsky’s centuries-old holiday classic, The Nutcracker. In Gray’s lighthearted reimagining, the Nutcracker—along with the Mouse King, the Gingerbread Man, and the Sugar Plum Fairy—launch into indignant and hilarious tell-all stand-up routines guaranteed to make even die-hard fans of the holiday ballet rethink the story of old. Wed 8 p.m.
