Last week I wrote about Ryan Landry’s troupe rehearsing for their new show, Rudolph the Red Necked Reindeer, which opens tonight at the Ramrod Performing Arts Center (otherwise known as Ramrod / Machine) at 1254 Boylston Street in Boston.

About the show:  Based on the Rankin/Bass Christmas special Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, the Orphan’s Rudolph is one sexy redneck with a southern drawl to boot! Along with special guest star Drew Barrymore, (her dogsled pulled by E.T.) Rudy and his trusty friend Herbie are out to save Christmas by any means necessary! But only if they can manage to escape the evil clutches of The Abominable Icicle Snow Monster Lady!

Tickets to this show are certain to sell out so be sure to purchase your tickets today.  Rudolph the Red Necked Reindeer opens tonight and runs through Sunday, December 23rd.

Rudolph the Red Necked Reindeer

Ryan Landry and his cast of misfits otherwise known as the Gold Dust Orphans are busy at work in rehearsals for their holiday show, Rudolph the Red Necked Reindeer.  More about this show will follow but for now all you need to know is that tickets are currently on sale.

Rudolph the Red Necked Reindeer opens Thursday, November 29th at 8:00 pm and will play every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night at 8:00 pm and every Sunday afternoon at 5:00 pm until December 23rd.

Mary Poppers

Ryan Landry and his Gold Dust Orphans announced their latest twisted musical, Mary Poppers.  This latest production begins one week from tonight with performances on Thursday – Saturday at 8PM and Sundays at 5PM from April 26th – May 20th at Machine, which is located at 1254 Boylston Street.

The brief release issued earlier this month suggests attendees should expect “big splashy musical numbers, flying nannies, puppets galore and more surprises than you can shake a parrot head umbrella at!” Hmm… sounds promising. It makes me wonder how Ryan Landry has reworked such classics like “Spoonful of Sugar”, “Chim Chim Cher-ee” and of course, “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious”.

For those unfamiliar with Landry and his cast of misfits (The Gold Dust Orphans) this is most definitely not kid-friendly.  Tickets are a bargain at $35.00 so reserve your tickets online today, hereIf you cannot see the show in Boston, never fear Landry will be bringing Mary Poppers to the Crown & Anchor in Provincetown starting Tuesday, June 26th.

Landry’s Rocky Horror Show is worth seeing

Ryan Landry’s take on the cult film classic, Rocky Horror Picture Show, opened in Cambridge at the Oberon Theater to a sold out audience filled with “Antici-Patients” as Dr. Frank-N-Furter (played by Landry) might have suggested on Friday, October 14th.

The 90-minute show which started at 11PM had all the energy of a rock concert and had half the crowd singing and dancing along with the band and cast.  The show remained faithful to the original with some tweaks and a new score, but Landry’s personality is also evident as he works a few snarky remarks into the act.  The cast croons out the tunes everyone knows with energy and better voices than I would have expected, making the show exceed expectations.

Shows will continue each Friday through December 2nd, and don’t be fooled the best tickets in the house are for standing room which cost only $25.  You can purchase your tickets here (and I hope you do) because I’d love to see this become a new fall tradition with the Oberon and Landry’s Gold Dust Orphans.
