Yippee Ki Yay
Join us for the 2023-2024 season - The Huntington is Boston's leading professional theatre, with two venues (Huntington Theatre and the Calderwood Pavilion at the BCA). Your seat is waiting! Discounts available.
In Yippee Ki Yay, when gunmen seize an LA skyscraper, off-duty policeman John McClane is the hostages’ only hope.
This uplifting action romp (and unauthorized parody) pays affectionate tribute to the iconic 80s festive fan favorite, and is essential viewing for Hans Gruber superfans and newcomers alike.
This US tour of this joyfully funny show told in verse follows a critically acclaimed tour of the UK and two seasons of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe where it was one of the “Picks of the Fringe” in The Stage and recommended by The British Comedy Guide.
The Guardian exclaimed, “Whether you’re a Die Hard fan or not, it guarantees happy trails,” and The Times called it an “especially entertaining show” and “a love letter to a masterpiece!”
Yippee Ki Yay runs for a limited time – 8 performances only – during the holiday season as a nod to the pop culture debates about whether the film should be considered a Christmas movie.
In interviews, Marsh has said he believes it to be a holiday film, but not necessarily one suitable for children
