The Loush Sisters Do the Nutcracker is a irreverent romp that combines holiday songs with pop music to highlight the history of the highly dysfunctional Loush family. For those with an open mind and a warped sense of humor you will find it entertaining and ridiculous. It is a nice alternative for the holidays.To see a full review of this show, read Mark Horning's blog.
Headlining a hysterical, wildly inappropriate cabaret are the far-from-puny-talented Holly (Beth Wood) and Jolly (Liz Conway), the titular Loush Sisters -- pronounced, as Holly explains it, "like 'loose' and 'lush,' only fancy." The two nouns perfectly describe the girls who can't say "no" -- to booze, boys and bawdy self-reflection.
