A mashup of “A Christmas Story,” “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer,” and “Silence of the Lambs, among others, it features 30+ beloved holiday characters, 4 overworked puppeteers, 2 celebrity narrators, nightly celebrity music guests, and way more than 1 murdered elf. As classic TV holiday specials are bastardized and abused in the story of Clarice the FBI Reindeer and kidnapper Buffalo Bill, host Burl Ives guides audiences through a descent into snowy madness, including horrific new wintertime melodies. “A CHRISTMASSACRE STORY: We’ll Shoot Your Eye Out” is the only world premiere original holiday musical in town this year, and stars Edward Carter Simon, Logan Faust, Katie Coplen Bourg, Michael Cerveris(Dec 4-7), and Kimberly Kaye, with a special contribution by handsome local prince Bryan Batt. We hope New Orleans locals and visitors will pop by The Shadowbox Theatre on your way to, or from, “A Christmas Carol” and parties with eggnog daiquiris for a Yuletide gift you’ll never forget…without therapy.
