There are three things you can count on every holiday season: an onslaught of ugly sweater party invites, crippling anxiety about family get-togethers, and John McClane. For the sixth consecutive year, A Very Die Hard Christmas returns to Bryant-Lake Bowl for a yuletide run of shows featuring singing, dancing, and blood. The play provides a faithful yet extremely tongue-in-cheek retelling of Die Hard, long considered the greatest Christmas movie ever made (mostly by Bruce Willis enthusiasts and Bruce Willis himself). The BLB production includes nods to iconic Christmas specials, and the show’s producer and star, Josh Carson, has managed to keep things fresh year after year with new jokes and guest stars. Whether you love or despise the holidays, this blood-soaked Christmas spectacle is the perfect way to show your yuletide spirit. Yippee ki-yay, Father Christmas.
