Produced by Jenn Cristy and her company, One Pulse Entertainment — which staged the Springsteen tribute, "Born to Run in the USA," at Downstairs Cabaret earlier this year — "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" has its own spin on the season's music. A live band, led by Cristy, puts its own style to Christmas classics, old carols, and some more recent additions to the holiday songbook.
"Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" is on stage Thursday, December 14, through Sunday, December 17, at Downstairs Cabaret Downtown, 20 Windsor Street. 7 p.m. on Thursday; 8 p.m. on Friday; 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. on Saturday; and 3 p.m. Sunday. $25-$29. 325-4370; downstairscabaret.com.
