The year is coming to a close but some theatre will live on while other shows end before Santa comes to town.
Jason Brock will have a wonderful Christmas show Sunday, Dec. 22 at 4pm and Monday. Dec. 23 at 7pm at Martuni's. The "X Factor" finalist will bring his own "ho ho ho" to set a tone for the holidays.
With your $25 ticket, you get to hear Brock singing classics old and new from "Silver Bells" to "Grown-Up Christmas List" with the aid of guest stars the Coker sisters. There's also some special cocktails concocted in tribute to Brock.

Coming to a close Sunday is G. Scott Lacy's Holiday Cabaret, which is at an intimate and lush venue inside the Hotel Rex. Society Cabaret is perhaps one of the best cabarets in San Francisco today and Lacy will tap into his jolly holly spirit as he reaches out to his industry friends to make each performance memorable.
Today's special guest is Christopher M Nelson, a popular singer/actor/writer who has been in productions from Theatre Rhino, New Conservatory Theatre Center and more.
Show is this afternoon, so get tickets NOW at http://www.ticketmaster.com/G-Scott-Lacy-tickets/artist/1927457
After the cabaret, it's not too late to catch the last performance of "It's Christmas, Carole!" a modern and comedic twist of the Scrooge classic - all at the magical hands of Michael Phillis and Sara Moore.
Final performance is 5pm Dec. 22. Get tickets and SOMA theatre info at www.itschristmascarole.com.
"Avenue Q," one of the funniest musicals ever made, is continuing its successful run at the New Conservatory Theatre Center through Jan. 12.
Sure the musical won a Tony Award for Best Musical and sure it stars puppets. But this is not your children's show as there are gay characters and songs that are quite adult: "It's Okay to Be Gay," "The Internet is for Porn" and "You Can Be As Loud as the Hell You Want When You're Makin' Love."
While having played at a large theatre on the Broadway stage, the show has since returned off-Broadway in a smaller house which is better suited for the show. The NCTC is also a very intimate theatre and is likely a perfect San Francisco venue for this winning show.
