“We’ve seen a lot of the same Christmas shows in Denver every year, and there’s nothing wrong with that; some people like to see those shows again and again. But I like to see something different,” Cardell says about his programming choice, an offering from the same playwrights — Jesse Jones, Nicholas Hope and Jamie Wooten — who wrote Dearly Departed, a popular hit for Spotlight a few years ago. “The holidays are a time for laughter. I think that’s important for people getting together with their families. Holidays can be wonderful, and sometimes they can be quite tough. Laughter brings people together.”
