  Christmas at the Old Bull and Bush at MetroStage

Christmas at the Old Bull and Bush

1201 North Royal Street Alexandria

Christmas at the Old Bull and Bush transports you to London, circa 1912, where you'll be treated to a holiday-themed variety show in the classic style of the famed British music hall. Mistress of Ceremonies Florrie Forde brings the mirth and mayhem via a sleighful of Christmas carols, comedy sketches, sing-alongs and more. A staple at the Old Vat Room at Arena Stage for years, this seasonal extravaganza now comes to MetroStage in Alexandria, where you can raise a pint and feast on traditional mince pies while enjoying the on-stage antics of Mr. Bertie Ramsbottom, Mr. Charles Archibald Potts and company.

"...Sometimes when family members get together for Christmas, they get a little rowdy and tell bad jokes and sing slightly off-color songs—and these are also trademarks of the English music hall, a tradition that has been transplanted to MetroStage in Alexandria, Virginia, in high style with Christmas at the Old Bull & Bush."

"...This Christmas I can imagine that I’m not the only one who feels fatigued from the year we’ve experienced. Perhaps your soul could be soothed by spending a couple of hours laughing in the dark at silly jokes and stomping to give your approval. That’s the Old Bull & Bush way and it’s quite cathartic."

"...With nimble-fingered Joseph Walsh providing simple piano accompaniment and also doubling as music director, the audience had a grand time, especially with the singalongs."

"...The show is inevitably creaky at times. Some things don’t translate happily. Flye has a turn as a woman who’s getting too long in the tooth to play a Fairy. “Nobody Loves a Fairy” is of course a dig at the dusty village pantos cast by amateurs. But it feels more than a little sad, or maybe it’s that my wand too is beginning to droop. Later, her monologue about a Kindergarten teacher rehearsing a Nativity pageant goes on a little long for modern taste."
