Arts preview: “Vaud-Villities: Under the Mistletoe” offers hip-hop take on latkes

From the December 12, 2013 edition

One of Columbus’ longest-running theatre companies presents a one-act revue featuring seasonal songs and dances inspired by beloved holiday movies.

The festive and amusing show draws from classics like “It’s A Wonderful Life” and “White Christmas,” as well as modern hits like “Home Alone.”

There’s also some Charlie Brown-inspired humor and even a hip-hop song about latkes. (“Hurry up with my damn latkes,” Kanye?)

A performance is scheduled each day this weekend.
