David Sedaris redefined holiday cheer in 1992 when he shared his experiences working as Crumpet, an elf in a Macy's holiday department, on National Public Radio. His brilliant memoir, "The Santaland Diaries," will return to the stage Dec. 1 in a one-act play featuring CATCO favorite Jon Putnam in the lead role. It's an ironic, delightfully profane look at Christmas traditions from one of America's greatest storytellers. Tickets cost $35.
