Staying in DC over Christmas weekend? It’s a nice time to be around as many people leave — it means table at a favorite (and popular) restaurant or hot show at a local theater.

For those still wanting to keep with the holiday spirit, we have two neighborhood options for you:

Check the listings below for full details. Some theaters are closed this Saturday, and others  closed Saturday and Sunday.

Keegan Theatre at Church Street at 1742 Church Street NW

  • Christmas Weekend Schedule: Friday night show with next performance on Thursday, December 29 (no performances on December 24-25).
  • An Irish Carol runs through December 31. “Set in a Dublin pub, this world premiere by Matthew Keenan is a homage to Dickens’ classic — told as only the Irish can. An Irish Carol follows one evening in the life of David, a wealthy pub owner who has distanced himself from others and lost touch with his own humanity in the interest of self protection and material success. But on this Christmas Eve — challenged by a voice from the past, provoked by those in this present, and faced with the reality of lonely future – David’s life may change forever.  An Irish Carol is a modern fable, told with the biting humor and incisive candor of its Irish playwright – a new holiday tradition for Keegan audiences.” (Keegan Theatre)

Lincoln Theatre at 1215 U Street NW

Source at 1835 14th Street NW

  • Christmas Weekend Schedule: No show on December 25.
  • Seasonal Disaster runs through December 31. From the Washington Improv Theater: “We’re putting together a hot mess of improv comedy just in time for the holidays. We know it’ll be improvised and will NOT exploit an injured orphan to invoke the spirit of holitimes charity and togetherness. Cuz that’s wrong. Also: No dancing mice. Cuz that’s scary… and sort of gross.” (Source) Check back for times.
  • Every Tuesday night at the Source is Harold Night! with the Washington Improv Theater. Overview: “Each week is a demonstration, celebration and experiment in the world-famous improv longform, Harold. It starts with an audience suggestion and explores whatever themes emerge through a series of scenes. All of the action is brought to life by WIT’s own Harold Teams right before your eyes.” (WIT)

Studio Theatre at 1501 14th Street NW

  • Christmas Weekend Schedule: No shows December 24-25.
  • Bust has been extended through December 31. “With one foot in Hollywood and the other in jail, the former Daily Show correspondent careens wildly between the two worlds, taking us on a hilarious, poignant, and completely unforgettable ride.” (Studio Theatre)
  • Time Stands Still opens January 4: “This searing drama from Pulitzer-Prize winner Donald Margulies follows an injured photojournalist who returns home from the battlefields of Iraq only to learn that some images can never be erased.” (Studio Theatre)

Theater J at 1529 16th Street NW

  • The Kinsey Sicks in Oy Vey in a Manger, December 24-26. “America’s favorite Dragapella Beauty-Shop Quartet brings its irreverent humor and harmonies back to DC just in time for the holidays. With gut-busting parodies and raucous schtick, The Kinsey Sicks offers wholesome favorites like “I Had a Little Facial,” “Harried Little Christmas,” and “‘Tis the Season to Drink Stoli!” (Theater J)
  • The Religion Thing runs January 4-29: “Mo and Brian are a picture-perfect DC couple: they’re smart, they’re witty, and they have a beautifully remodeled kitchen. But when Mo’s best friend Patti announces she’s found Jesus and is putting her own career on hold, Mo must take a closer look at the harder truths surrounding her own marriage. A brand new comedy about relationships, faith and the fine line between compromise and regret.” (Theater J)
