Aladdin  
The British Players at Kensington Town Hall Aladdin
 
Ridiculously funny, riotously colorful and starring your favorite storybook characters, pantomime theater might be the best holiday import from England since plum pudding. Now The British Players bring you Aladdin, an authentic (and hilarious) "panto." However, if you think you know the story of Aladdin, think again. Great songs, riotously bad jokes, dastardly villains and slapstick-aplenty transform this classic from Arabian Nights into a silly and satisfactory night of theater for all ages. Start a new family tradition for the holidays, British-style.
   
Bad Jews  
The Studio Theatre Bad Jews
 
It's a battle royale of the family kind -- the Jewish family kind. The night after their Holocaust survivor grandfather's funeral, three cousins battle it out over an heirloom -- a necklace of a chai, the Hebrew word and symbol for life -- that saw Poppy through a concentration camp and into his new life in America. In one corner is Daphna: volatile, self-assured, unbending. In the other, Liam: secular, entitled and just as stubborn (toting a goyishe girlfriend to boot). And in the middle, Liam's brother Jonah, who tries futilely to stay out of the fray. This savage comedy about identity, family and legacy was the hottest show in New York City last year. Jewish or not, you're sure to see your own family in the midst of all the comic mayhem.
