November 30 - December 10:
LITTLE LORD'S BABES IN TOYLAND
The Brick (575 Metropolitan Ave. between Union Ave. and Lorimer, Williamsburg).
In this anarchic and awkwardly sincere holiday incarnation, the members of Little Lord theater company strip down Victor Herbert's 1903 operetta Babes in Toyland to make the most of its absurd, nonsensical plot about a pair of young lovers and their fantastical journey from Mother Goose Village to Toyland. Staged as a "recession spectacular," its world is one of brightly painted cardboard and shoddy spectacle, with a cast of five playing over two-dozen gender-bending roles. Not recommended for children. It is adapted and directed by Michael Levinton with musical direction by Kate Marvin. Wednesdays - Fridays at 8pm, Saturdays at 8pm & 10:30pm. Tickets are $18, available at 212-352-3101 or www.bricktheater.com.

Will she finally land the lady...or ladies... of her dreams? December 6, 9, 13, and 22 at 7:30 PM.
