A Klingon Christmas Carol

Yes, I'm as serious as Data.  Thanks to Merc (author Abby Rustad) for bringing this to my attention on her Livejournal blog.  If you live in the St. Paul MN or Chicago IL area--or are planning a holiday trip to the environs--you might want to check it out.

Commedia Beauregard--  together with the IKV RakeHell of the Klingon Assault Group in St. Paul and the IKV Emperor's Hand of the Klingon Assault Group in Chicago--presents this very original take on an age old holiday tradition entirely in Klingon...with subtitles! (And narrative analysis from the Vulcan Institute of Cultural Anthropology.)

St. Paul Pioneer Press says of A Klingon Christmas Carol:

"Commedia Beauregard weds Dickens to Roddenbury, with oddly effective results."

And hey, these are Klingons so expect plenty of action (brawls! spills! chills!) and classic Trek elements (transporters! and other fun!). 

Not sure about a blend of Klingons and Scrooge?  Check out the full page of reviews including io9.com.

The dates are November 26th - December 12th in the Twin Cities area.  November 26th to December 19th in the Chicago area.  (See the links above for details.)

tlhIngan Holidays!

  3. LOL, Pauline. I didn't see that show.

    And thanks for stopping by, Heather.

    I'm thinking I may have to plan a trip to St. Paul next year if it's being perfomed again.
