The high-spirited vaudevillian variety show directed by Jp Jordan features Touchstone founder Bill George's beloved character, "The Old Guy," coming to terms with difficult questions in his life. Follies veterans with the Touchstone Ensemble such as Mary Wright present "Little Red" in her quest for seasonal happiness. There’s the "Shopping Cart Ballet" and even a take on the Mayan Apocalypse.
