Craving a little splash of vodka in your Christmas cheer? Prefer watching "Bad Santa" over "It's a Wonderful Life"? Think naughty > nice? David Sedaris sympathizes. In 1992, the now-famous humorist wrote an autobiographical essay about being broke and working as an elf at the massive Macy's department store in New York. The essay was adapted into a one-man show, and it's now the funniest, most irreverent anti-holiday classic. If you need a break from a crazy family, mall madness or cloying carols, Cameron Folmar dons the candy-cane tights for a heaping dose of (anti)holiday hilarity in "The Santaland Diaries" at Drafthouse Comedy Theater in Washington, DC.

Playwright Alfred Uhry brilliantly mined his Atlanta Jewish upbringing for his Pulitzer and Oscar-winning "Driving Miss Daisy", and he digs into it again for "The Last Night of Ballyhoo", resulting in the same successful mix of thought-provoking drama and laughter, with a touch of romance. Now coming to the Edlavitch DCJCC's Theater J, the Tony-winning play takes you back to December 1939, as Atlanta hosts the "Gone With the Wind" premiere and Hitler invades Poland. But the biggest concern of the Freitag family is Ballyhoo, a lavish ball for the southern Jewish elite. When Uncle Adolph brings Joe -- his new, very eligible assistant -- home for dinner, sparks fly between his niece and the Brooklyn native, whose presence lights a fuse on a family dispute over long-held beliefs and prejudices.

With its Gershwin score and book by Tony-nominee Ken Ludwig ("Lend Me a Tenor"), "Crazy For You" has been a crowd-pleaser since its acclaimed Broadway debut in 1992.
