Another Christmas show. BNW is always good and judging from the turnout for the BLB Christmas show, we're in the mood for some hohoho.

I'm going with the 5 PM show. It worked well the last few times as we can go out afterwards and not be rushed.

Tickets will be held for us at the box office will call under "Twin City Comedy and Wine Meetup". Show starts at 5. Seating opens at 4:30. Bar opens at 4. Lets get there between 4 and 4:30 to socialize and make all merry and stuff.

Tickets are normally $32 plus tax, but I've got us a discount price of $18. It comes to $20.76 total including Paypal fees and tax ($18 for tiks, 10.775% tax, 2,9% + 30 cents Paypal fees).

BNW makes me give an estimate and pay up front to get a discount, so I need to collect up front. Hence the Paypal. If you don't like Paypal, you can kill a tree and send me a check. As in the past, no refunds unless you can find a replacement (your replacement pays me and I'll refund to you, or just have them pay you and they get your ticket).

I've made reservations for 12. I can adjust the number up (but not down). I'm supposed to have my final number in by 11/26, so I'm setting that as the deadline. In the past, the 5 PM hasn't sold out, and they let us continue to add after the deadline. Of course they're giving me the "we'll filling up fast" line. Maybe it's true this time. Maybe not. Sign up by 11/26 and then you (and I) don't have to worry about it.

And now, without further ado, here's the write-up from BNW (along with a purty picture):

The BNW mixes a little bit of naughty with some seasonal Minnesota Nice for a hilarious dish of original holiday-themed sketches and songs. Being an annual tradition for many, the BNW promises to also bring a few past favorites into the mix.

While other theatrical holiday traditions might include the likes of “The Christmas Carol” or “The Nutcracker,” those preferring less traditional belly laughs and a more satirical look at the holidays have made the BNW holiday show an annual must-see tradition. To many in our community, it wouldn’t be winter in Minnesota without BNW’s sharp, funny take on the holiday season and all of its traditions, both pleasant and grueling.

“Fifty Shades of White” will feature BNW cast members Lauren Anderson, Taj Ruler, Andy Hilbrands, and Bobby Gardner. All of these actors will be fresh off their run with the crowd-pleasing fall political-themed show, “The Rainbow Election.” ”Fifty Shades of White” is directed by Caleb McEwen, with Josh Eakright providing addition writing, Peter Guertin returning as musical director and Dan Peltzman joining the crew for the first time to provide technical direction.
