Holiday Parody A VERY DIE HARD CHRISTMAS To Return To Seattle Public Theater

It’s a Christmas miracle, Yippee Ki Yay! After four years of sold out shows and ridiculously happy audiences, The Habit’s A Very Die Hard Christmas returns to the shores of Green Lake with a 34 show run at Seattle Public Theater. With a cast of fresh new faces alongside fan favorites, this year’s show is ready to tackle the challenge of delivering the funniest version ever of this fast-paced comedy.

“While the comedy and pace of the script remain the same, the production this year is brand new with a Nakatomi Plaza and Los Angeles Skyline set designed by Ron Darling and Jennifer Ewing.” says director and producer Mark Siano, “and of course we’re always adding new gags and jokes to make it fresh”

A Very Die Hard Christmas is penned by The Habit Comedy’s lead writer Jeff Schell (Titanish, Chaos Theory, Indy Jones, The Final Cut, The Habit) and directed by Mark Siano (Titanish, Bohemia, The Fairy’s Bottom, Den of Thieves, Indy Jones, Seattle Vice, Spirit Parlour, Soft Rock) with music by John Kranz (The Fairy’s Bottom, Seattle Vice, Titanish, Indy Jones) and featuring a cast of new faces and old favorites.
