Project Runway Star Premieres Holiday Comedy
CHRIS MARCH'S BUTT-CRACKER SUITE! -- A TRAILER PARK BALLET
Limited Engagement begins November 24

HERE presents the World Premiere of CHRIS MARCH'S BUTT-CRACKER SUITE!
-- A TRAILER PARK BALLET Written, directed, and designed by Chris
March ("Project Runway" and Bravo's "Mad Fashion") and choreographed
by Benjamin Franklin, begin November 24 at HERE.

CHRIS MARCH'S BUTT-CRACKER SUITE! is an outrageous re-creation of "The
Nutcracker" set, of course, in a trailer park. Dancing pink flamingos,
cans of Spam, and ugly Christmas sweaters come to life on Christmas
Eve… but no Sugar Plum Fairies or Snowflakes in this version! March
promises to brighten your holiday season by turning "trash" into this
season's most unique and outrageous show. With a lot of fun music,
over-the-top costumes, fabulous dancers, and just a hint of blasphemy,
this show is the tacky gift that keeps on giving!

The production will star dancers Sara Brophy, Michael Dauer, Joshua
Dean, Vassiliki Ellwood, Ashley Munzek, Andrea Palesh, Kristen
Schoen-Rene and Dana Winkle, as well as Chris March himself. The
production team includes Andrea Purcigliotti of Damage Studios
(scenery), JennyB/ShadyLady (lighting), Neelam Vaswani (production
manager) and Nathan K. Claus (stage manager).

March returns to his theater roots with this new holiday comedy.
Drawing upon his special brand of no-holds-barred outrageousness,
March continues to parody pop culture from his roles in "Christmas
with the Crawfords" to his many television appearances.

Chris March is a Drama Desk nominated New York costume and fashion
designer known for his appearances on "Project Runway" and his own
Bravo show "Mad Fashion". With celebrity clients including Madonna,
Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Chaka Khan, Chanel, and (yes!) even Meryl Streep.
