Go Crackers for Christmas

I’ve been posting my weekly theatre picks on Monday, but this week’s pick, Hotel Bethlehem, will have finished its Vancouver run by then, so I’m jumping the gun a bit.
Drew McCreadie’s script is completely wacky. Not all of it works, but, under Diane Brown’s direction, it goes by so quickly that’s not really a problem. And the show delivers more belly laughs per minute than anything else in town.

Hotel Bethlehem runs at Studio 16 until December 10, then it moves to the Shadbolt in Burnaby December 14 to 18.
