Scandal erupts at the North Pole when one of Santa's eight tiny reindeer accuses him of sexual harassment.
After performing in multiple productions of The Eight Reindeer Monologues with Chicago's critically acclaimed Journeymen Theater Co., Artistic Pride Production’s Artistic Director, Anthony Wills Jr., brings his take on this hilarious comedy by Jeff Goode to New York audiences. Jack Helbig of The Chicago Reader raved that Journeymen director Frank Pullen makes "this Santa send-up both outrageous and touching” Following in the footsteps of Pullen, Anthony Wills mines the piece for its comedy while adding his own dark twist. This production is expertly played by a troupe of actors who are not only funny but also bring out the often subtle complexity of playwright Joe Goode's characters.
Not only is this show a welcome change from your typical holiday fair, but Artistic Pride Productions presents the show in an all new format. Their production stars company members Ben Curtis, Matthew Hardy, Anthony Wills Jr. and a rotating cast of guest artists including ...Rocio Mendez, Anna Wilson, Craig Zisel, Sophia Loren Coffee, Ryan Duncan, Anna Rahn, William Mowbray, Stephen Tenner, Cassie Fireman, Thomas Martin, Tanesha Ford and more! Each performance is a new experience with actors playing different roles on different nights. This play is so hilariously entertaining you just might want to see it again and again. Sexual misconduct in the work place...drunken Santa....corporate scandal cover up...flying reindeer....what better way to spend a night at the theater!!!
The Eight Reindeer Monologues also marks the first production with APPs new managing Director, Ben Curtis. In it’s second year Artistic Pride Productions is a collective of Artists who create opportunities for some of the best artists working regionally, and across the country to work with their favorite peers.
