The Santaland Diaries, written by David Sedaris, takes us behind the cardboard candy canes and fake snow of Macy's Santaland in New York City, says Luke Eddy.

Guided by our not-so-friendly elf, Crumpet, we get to see what it's really like to be one of Santa's little helpers as they usher clueless tourists, obsessive parents and a slew of misbehaving children through their make-shift winter wonderland.

Make no mistake, our foul-mouthed little elf is here to skewer the holidays with a healthy helping of sarcasm.

This hour-long, one-man show starring Luke Thomas Eddy will open Dec 15 and run for one weekend only with performances Dec 15, 16 and 17 at 8 pm with a closing performance on Dec 18 at 2 pm.

$15 for adults, $12 for seniors and military, $10 for Centenary and non-Centenary College students with a valid ID.

Tickets can be reserved by leaving a message on the box office voicemail at 869-5242.

The Marjorie Lyons Playhouse is located on Wilkinson Street between Woodlawn Avenue and Alexander Street.

This show is rated-R due to adult language.
