No idea where you park unless you get there early and get a spot on the street.

Funny, insightful play which rang true to past experiences. The 3-woman chorus were very personable. Enjoyable evening to get you in the holiday spirit.

Description

After nine years, back by popular demand! This holiday season, City Lights reprises one of the funniest and most outrageous portraits of holiday cynicism ever written. In this unlikely holiday classic by one of America’s supreme satirists, an out-of-work slacker finds temporary employment as a Macy’s holiday elf during the holiday crunch. Enduring humiliation and succumbing to battle-weary bitterness, our hero shares his observations of ill-mannered parents, obnoxious children, drunk and lecherous department store Santas, and the whole holiday hoopla with unswerving insight and relentless wit.
