CHRISTMAS WITH MISFITS is the most unique and enjoyable holiday show in Utah this year. Everything from the set to the lights to the costumes to the acting and directing come together to create a simple, sweet, honest show that is exactly what everyone needs to hear this holiday season. Plan-B has done it again.

CHRISTMAS WITH MISFITS is a tender and charming look at the underbelly of Christmas. You will know these people and their wants, disappointments and honesty. With just the right touch of humor, Julie Jensen pushes aside the cloying sweetness of the season, to reveal that for many, Christmas is less than joyful.

A hilarious, heartwarming look at Christmas from the perspective of “the rest of us.” CHRISTMAS WITH MISFITS proves that you don’t have to be the traditional tinsel-and-holly type to find something worth smiling at this time of year.

CHRISTMAS WITH MISFITS is a wonderful original work! It is exciting to see such love for this craft in our community. The physicality and scene work between the three actors is beautiful.

For many people, the holidays are a time of conflicting feelings — the traditional joyfulness of the season often coexists with cynicism and doubt. Through a series of four vignettes, CHRISTMAS WITH MISFITS explores the love-hate relationship with Christmastime, combining humor, wit, and truth to create a hilarious and heartfelt take on the holiday.

Julie Jensen and the cast of Plan-B’s CHRISTMAS WITH MISFITS have delivered a twistedly humorous and emotionally impactful holiday romp. The overstuffed holiday box of Christmas decorations is well worth the ticket price alone. A much needed treat!

I laughed a lot. It’s a reminder that the holidays aren’t all fun and games. It was like seeing Christmas from backstage – and mischievously sacriligious.

“The Baby Jesus Collection” was my favorite. It was laugh out loud funny!
