From the producers:
HOLLY DOLLY CHRISTMAS: A Dolly Parton Jukebox Musical/Comedy Show from Jo Firestone, Aaron Jackson & Josh Sharp
From the people who brought you the Whitney Houston musical “Houston: We Have a Whitney”, and the July 4th Miley Cyrus extravaganza, “Party In The USA”, and the Taylor Swift spy-thriller smash “Tinker Taylor Swifter Spy” comes the newest tribute to country legend DOLLY PARTON in a holiday jukebox musical entitled HOLLY DOLLY CHRISTMAS.
If you’ve ever dreamed of starring in a musical entirely made up of Dolly Parton’s hits, this will be the best night of your life. This show strings together the best of Parton’s songs with a hastily-written plot and lots of audience participation. Hosted by Jo Firestone (Punderdome 3000, Broad City), Josh Sharp (Comedy Central’s ‘Comics to Watch’), and Aaron Jackson (UCB, Broad City). The Hastily Written Masterpiece Starring the Audience series is a delightful send-up of your favorite musical icons, blending karaoke, comedy, and the best kind of dance party.

Join author Katie McKenna for storytelling stand-up and reading of her debut memoir, HOW TO GET RUN OVER BY A TRUCK, which details her real life experience of being run over by a truck, and all of the terrible, but surprisingly hilarious, things that can happen when one pivotal moment breaks apart everything you know to be true.
Katie will be reading from her new book, telling a few stories and then there will be a brief Q&A with time to talk. We hope that you can join us!
