In the end, “The Gayest Christmas Pageant Ever!” is an excellent way to bring in the holidays and, as main character Rod says, “It’s gay men that make theatre fabulous.”

All of this action is hit and miss funny. If things get a little slow, Jim the stoned TD, comes to the rescue.
Bill Kamyar – WeHo News
That this campy romp falls apart in Act 2 and still gets a “Go” says plenty about Joe Marshall’s knack for comedic dialogue and director Paul Storiale’s casting.
Rebecca Haithcoat – LA Weekly
Though it’s now too late to catch this year’s edition of The Gayest Christmas Pageant Ever, audience and critical response to this must-improved Version 2.0 suggest that Storiale and company might want to make Marshall’s comedy a yearly North Hollywood tradition. Holiday theatergoers would be hard-pressed to find a funnier show with which to bring in 2014.
