Holiday spirit yet? No? Busy Matisyahu ushers in Chanukah at Webster Hall and drag queens paper the house at Oh Holy Shit, It’s Christmas! at the Cutting Room. “The idea was, ‘What if the Virgin Mary was a boozy lounge singer telling her side of the events?’” said star Mimi Imfurst. “Not only did she eat the bread at the last supper, she took home leftovers! … It’s the downtown version of the Radio City Christmas Spectacular.” Ooh, goody!
