In this week’s issue, Alive’s trusty theater reviewer, Jay Weitz, wrote about “The 12 Dates of Christmas,” a one-woman play presented by CATCO. The story, written and performed by the actress Ginna Hoben, is about Mary’s search for love through the year following the witness of her finace making out with another woman at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. The show is, as Weitz reported, predictable, but full of funny. It feels like you’re just reminiscing with a girlfriend over some trashy chardonnay (which, by the way, you can buy fancy versions of at the theater to drink while you watch). This is one to take your friends who are fans of progressive-lady chick flicks to. The show runs through Dec. 23. Get tickets here.
