More wonderfully written reviews by people who know our work well.  Jayne Blanchard writes in DC Theatrescene

“Seasonal schmaltz making you farklempt?  Tarnish that tinsel with a refreshing nip of filth in The Kinsey Sick’s raunchy holiday roundelay Oy Vey in a Manger. The Aaron and Cecile Goldman Theater at Theater J has seen some sights in its time, but probably not four men in perfectly-coiffed drag singing seamless a capella harmony (they call themselves “dragapella” and a “beauty shop quartet”) while doing things like tossing pubic wigs out into the audience or gyrating suggestively atop a dreidel. The beauty of the Kinsey Sicks is that they are equal opportunity parodists—gays, straights, Christians, Jews, liberals, Republicans all get the non-PC treatment. Nothing in this fast-paced musical revue is sacred or off-limits and thank God for that.”

So three for three today with The Washington Post review of earlier this morning leading the way, all of which combining to give us our biggest 24 hours of box office sales in our history — Over $12,000 in 24 hours. We actually sold $1,500 from 9:30 pm last night until 4:00 AM (I know, cause that’s when I woke up)! So this project is going to do beautifully. But alas, only 800 tickets remain to be sold! They could all be gone in the next 5 days!

Nice way to end a great year!
