This issue of the Insider comes out exactly one week before Christmas, meaning this will be your last chance to check out some Christmas shows this year (or at least your last chance to learn about them in this paper). If you miss out and have to wait until next year, don’t say we didn’t give you fair warning.
Also, there’s plenty of non-Christmas stuff on the docket this week, including several concerts and movies that don’t have a thing to do with the holiday, for all of you Grinches out there.
