A VERY DIE HARD CHRISTMAS is Returning to the Seattle Public Theater

A VERY DIE HARD CHRISTMAS is Returning to the Seattle Public Theater

It's a Christmas miracle, Yippie Ki Yay! After a full sold-out run in 2018, The Habit's A Very Die Hard Christmas returns to Seattle Public Theater. Created by the comedy writers that have had Seattle in stitches for years, this musical parody borrows from the iconic film and promises lots of action, 80s jokes, smooth soft rock jams, and snarky German terrorists. Performances run November 29 - December 28, 2019 and tickets are on sale now.

For years the debate about if Die Hard constitutes a classic Christmas story has raged on around the dinner table and director Mark Siano has decided to take it to the stage. "People who think Die Hard is not a Christmas movie, are just clearly wrong. Die Hard is already a big part of many people's holiday traditions, that's why they come in droves to see this parody."

A Very Die Hard Christmas is penned by The Habit Comedy's lead writer Jeff Schell (Chaos Theory, Indy Jones, The Final Cut, The Habit) and directed by Mark Siano (Bohemia, Indy Jones, Seattle Vice, Twister Beach, Soft Rock) with music by John Kranz (Modern Luv, Seattle Vice, Soft Rock) and featuring a cast of new faces and old favorites.
