MetroStage presents “Christmas at the Old Bull and Bush.”

Nice pic. Audience participation isn’t encouraged–it’s practically a requirement. Volunteers join the group onstage in numbers such as “Lambeth Walk” and “The Cratchit Christmas Dinner,” and the audience as a whole is incorporated in a number of ways throughout the show. Finally, those who purchase traditional Christmas crackers during intermission all get to pull them together, and for a moment the space is filled with childlike excitement as people exchange jokes, admire their trinkets, and put on their paper crowns. It’s a feeling that lingers well after the players leave the stage. Ref:
