Thursday - Sunday
Kringles Kristmas Kabaret begins when doors open at 7 p.m.
The Eight begins at 8 p.m.
The producer, writer, and cast of this year's runaway hit POONA THE FUCKDOG bring to Seattle Goode's anti- Christmas pageant THE EIGHT: Reindeer Monologues for a two-week benefit engagement at Re-bar, Seattle's popular venue for alternative music and comedy.
In Goode's internationally-acclaimed black comedy THE EIGHT, a media frenzy erupts when scandalous allegations are leveled at the North Pole s most prominent resident. As each legendary member of Santa s flying team comes forward to demand its share of the lime-light, a horrific tale of corruption and perversion emerges, implicating everyone from the littlest elf to the tainted Saint himself.
Each night before THE EIGHT will be the Kringles' Kabaret with live music and pictures on Santa's lap, so come early to join in the holiday fun!
