Sister’s Christmas Catechism: The Mystery of the Magi’s Gold

When: Thu., Dec. 10, 8 p.m., Fri., Dec. 11, 8 p.m., Sat., Dec. 12, 3 & 8 p.m. and Sun., Dec. 13, 3 p.m. 2015

Employing “scientific tools,” a choir, and a random selection of audience members, “Sister” unfolds the mystery of whatever the hell happened to that gold the Magi delivered to the baby Jesus — after all, we know Mary used the Frankincense and Myrrh to counteract the stench of animal waste in that stanky barn. This retelling of the Nativity story probably isn’t what you’re used to, but you’re much more likely to giggle than during the annual Christmas sermon. This performance is the last of the year, but Sister’s Christmas Catechism: The Mystery of the Magi’s Gold regularly returns to City Theatre each holiday season.

Price: $38
