🎟 $29+

In the battle for best Christmas movie (going up against It’s a Wonderful LifeHome Alone, and Elf) is an action film starring NYC detective John McClane, played by Bruce Willis. Taking place in the wee hours before Santa’s sleigh arrives, the validity of whether Die Hard is a Christmas movie is a hotly contested topic—but if you fall on the yay side of the debate, put a date inside your advent calendars to see A Very Die Hard Christmas. 

Taking place annually at Seattle Public Theater, this sketch comedy-style musical parody was written by Jeff Schell and the local comedy troupe The Habit, a group that spoofs other film classics like Titanic and Indiana Jones. This production brings back ’80s hair and humor in a big way. And remember, it’s a musical. So: CHRISTMAS! ACTION! COMEDY! MUSIC! If your family’s holiday tradition revolves more around the takeover of an LA tower than carving a turkey, so what? If you think about it, Home Alone follows similar themes—taking down the bad guys and family reunification.

(FYI: This show has become a tradition for many in Seattle, so it often sells out. However, single seats are usually available.)
