Sugar Plum Gary
Conceived and performed by Emmett Montgomery
Sugar Plum Gary used to not believe in Christmas until one magical Christmas Eve Santa came to visit the orphanage he grew up in, and he was the only survivor becoming possessed by the holiday spirit. For years he has wandered the planet searching for answers and visiting 18th and Union every December to share about the fun cosmic nightmare that is CHRISTMAS (in a body that is shaped like somewhat beloved storyteller and comedian Emmett Montgomery stuffed into footie pajamas with Santa Claus faces for the feet) and during these strange holidays in which we are all trapped in our own tiny universes folks can use technology to let Gary into our homes and hearts to learn on how best to survive the night.
COVID-19 and 18th & Union: The Reopening
"I'm simply saying that life, uh... finds a way."
-Jeff Goldblum, Jurassic Park
18th & Union is pleased to announce new shows for Fall 2020. The venue has been closed since March due to the COVID-19 public health crisis. After six challenging months, we’re reopening with three solo productions in September and a full slate of world premiere plays in October.
18th & Union is carefully and proactively following all public health recommendations. We’ve made improvements to the physical venue, acquired equipment to support live streaming over the internet, and set up health and safety protocols for artists, audience members and others who will access the space.
