A Very Pointless Holiday Spectacular

Something against the grain? This show at Flashpoint may be the ticket. The upstart Pointless Theatre Company, a Hayes winner this past spring as outstanding emerging troupe, is promising "a winter cabaret for adults" in the tiny Mead Theatre Lab as Santa and his elves cobble together their own talent show. Comic improv and "a funky reindeer band" also are on a list that may or may not have been checked twice. -- Nelson Pressley Flashpoint 916 G St. NW, Washington, DC | 202-315-1305
