Chris March has competed on Project Runway, had his own reality show, been nominated for a Drama Desk Award, and outfitted the likes of Lady Gaga, Madonna, and Meryl Streep. Eager, ambitious, and bursting with talent, March can now add to his accomplishments an outrageous Christmas-themed off-Broadway show, written, directed, and starring the jolly designer himself. Chris March's Butt-Cracker Suite! is a hilarious riff on the Nutcracker set in a trailer park. March stars as Clara, a young, wide-eyed, tutu-wearing protagonist who dreams about her perfect Christmas. Candy, Spam, Miracle Whip, beer cans, classic Christmas film clips, and glow-in-the-dark flamingos dance through her fantasyland, and of course the Mouse King and Nutcracker are there too. Campy, colorful and outlandish, this fun production will likely find favor among fans of John Waters.
