ARFTCo's Another Year Without a Witty Title Chicago Christmas Spectacular! Closing (Theater and Galleries) The Short List (Theater)

When: Fridays, Saturdays. Continues through Jan. 9 2010

Local playwrights reveal their twisted relationships with the holiday season in this cheeky Christmas variety show directed by Michael Buino. The brief skits run from off-color carols to a hard-hitting North Pole newscast and a choir-robed ensemble singing, "On the first day of change the Democrats gave to me . . . " Highlights include "Gate B-28," a hilarious airport rant Samantha Garcia spits at an unlucky gate attendant. And in Rosemary Newton's witty parody, "Nancy Drew and the Clue in the Christmas Stocking," Nancy and her pals solve a caper with dated catch phrases and questionable sleuthing. --Marissa Oberlander

Price: $12-$15
