Ring in the scary and cheery holiday season with This Is Halloween, the Can Can Culinary Cabaret‘s hot adaptation of Tim Burton’s iconic stop-motion animation film, The Nightmare Before Christmas. Now in its 16th year, the show is taking over the Triple Door again, where you can chow down on Southeast Asian-inspired food from the venue’s sister restaurant, Wild Ginger, while giddily taking in the frightening and fantastical performance onstage. 

Directed by Chris Pink, This Is Halloween centers around the pinstripe suit-clad Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King of Halloween Town. Supremely bored of terrorizing humans year in and year out, one day Jack stumbles upon the cheery Christmas Town and plots to take over the joyous village—with disastrous results. The Can Can’s re-telling incorporates vocal performances, burlesque, live orchestral music, and video projections to amp up the production. This year’s show includes choreography from Fae Pink, visuals from TJ Davis and Lux Collective, and more updates… to be revealed. Don’t get too spooked!
