Falcon Theater knows its way around offbeat musicals. For the holidays, they offer one with a Rock score and puppets.
Music trio Groove Lily created this concert event off-Broadway in 2004 with a Tony Award-winning writer. It’s about a lonely guy in a major funk thanks to holiday cheer. He skips a New Year’s Eve party and stays home. Nothing better to do, he reads Hans Christian Andersen’s The Little Match Girl, and the story unexpectedly comes to life.
7 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays; 4 p.m. Sundays. Through Dec. 14. $20 adults; $17 students and seniors. Monmouth Theatre, 636 Monmouth St., Newport, Ky., 513-479-6783, falcontheater.net.
