Another dose of holiday levity will hit local theater this Saturday with the opening of Oy Vey in a Manger at Theater J at the DC Jewish Community Center. The show, which runs through January 2, is a production of The Kinsey Sicks.

Who are the Kinsey Sicks? As they tell it: “The Kinsey Sicks began in 1993 as a group of friends who went to a Bette Midler concert in San Francisco dressed as the Andrews Sisters. With a phenomenal performance record that includes an Off-Broadway show, an extended run in Vegas, two feature films, seven albums and appearances throughout the US, Canada, Mexico, Europe and Australia, the Kinsey Sicks hardly need an introduction.”

So, what about the show? With that record, does it matter? Here’s how Theater J bills Oy Vey in a Manger: “America’s favorite Dragapella Beauty-Shop Quartet brings its irreverent humor and harmonies 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.’ “

Yes, we’re going.

It’s the final weekend to catch Golden Boy at the Church Street-Keegan Theatre (Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday): “Joe Bonaparte sets aside his dream of becoming a violinist for the promise of a lucrative boxing career. As he skyrockets to boxing fame, Joe finds himself torn between the lure of big money and the distinct possibility of injuring his hands and permanently destroying his musical career.”

Speaking of levity, the Washington Improv Theater’s Seasonal Disorder runs for two more weeks, through December 31. It’s at the Source on 14th Street NW.

The full list of live theater in the Dupont-Logan-U Street area is below the fold.
