The production streams December 1 through December 31, 2020.

Fresh, funny and smart - it's back. Conceived and directed by Producing Artistic Director Rob Ruggiero, Connecticut's favorite holiday tradition returns to TheaterWorks Hartford. CHRISTMAS ON THE ROCKS features seven playwrights each adding their own spin to the canon of holiday traditions past.

Rob said "This is Christmas on the Rocks as you know it - but filmed to stream on our stage - and this year, the audience will be behind the bar." Filmed in first person Point of View, this adventurous new look puts you right in the middle of the action.

Rob added "I'm super excited, we're bringing together the whole gang! This year, fan favorites Jenn Harris (The Women) and Randy Harrison (Tiny Tim and Ralphie) will be joined by Harry Bouvy (Charlie) and Matthew Wilkas (Hermey) - both featured in previous years as The Man. Ted Lange is also back as the voice of The Bartender." This is the 8th year TheaterWorks has staged the production to an ever-growing audience.

Rob added "This year more than ever, we all want to hold onto joy, hope and traditions past. Streaming Christmas on the Rocks is the perfect tradition to share with family and friends - near and far"

Christmas on the Rocks is an offbeat collection of twisted holiday tales by John Cariani, Jeffrey Hatcher, Jenn Harris & Matthew Wilkas, Jacques Lamarre, Theresa Rebeck and Edwin Sanchez.

It's Christmas Eve in a rundown local bar. Expecting a silent night, the bartender finds himself mixing drinks for a parade of surprising guests - children from your favorite Christmas specials and movies - now all grown up. Join them as they pour out their Christmas woes in this delightful parody.
