It used to be our tradition to go see beloved institution DINA MARTINA, and her annual XMAS SHOW, on its Black Friday opening night at her long time home at Re-bar, but somehow we fell out of that habit. And, even if we wanted to respark that tradition this year, we couldn’t ; the Divine Dina’s Xmas 2014 opener tonight (Friday, November 28) is sold out.
Tomorrow’s show is sold out, too.
In fact, all the Saturday night shows before Xmas are sold out and most of the Fridays as well. Ms Martina is doing 30 shows this year between now and December 31 and you’d better figure out what date you wanna go, and grab those tickets or you’ll miss out on the funniest damn Xmas show in town. And, unlike many shows, it’s ALL NEW every year! (Well, last year was her “Greatest Hits” show but she needed a break….plus, we WANTED to see those brilliant, classics from her repertoire!)
From her breathless (she really needs to do more aerobic activity…) press release:
Returning to Seattle’s Re-bar November 28 – December 31 with an ALL-NEW holiday show – “The Second Lady of Entertainment”, the most surreal and hilarious chanteuse you’ll ever find – DINA MARTINA! Accompanied on the ivories by Stranger Genius Award winner MR. CHRIS JEFFRIES and armed with truly legendary songs, stories, costumes and audience gifts, Dina Martina will give you one of the most festive, invigorating and ingeniously funny evenings you’ve ever had! See why she’s a favorite of John Waters, Matt Stone, Margaret Cho, Jennifer Coolidge, Graham Norton and many, many more! GET YOUR TICKETS NOW, BECAUSE PRETTY SOON THEY’LL BE GOIN’ LIKE HOTCAKES!
ALSO – BLOODY MARY/MIMOSA WEEKEND MATINEES AT 2PM ON DECEMBER 13th, 14th, 20th, 21st, 27th & 28th!
Also this year, we’re supposed to get the “as pictured above” commemorative Dina Martina Holiday Plates!
Swoon! Who wouldn’t wanna cherry pie off Dina’s face!
For virgins, “The Dina Martina Christmas Show” is a must see event at least once in your lifetime….of course, after one Dina experience, you’ll be a hopelessly pathetic Dina addict for the rest of your life….no amount of detox can save you.
