Elf with attitude | American Stage continues its edgy after-hours shows with the not-for-kids tale The SantaLand Diaries. Based on David Sedaris' tale of Crumpet, the chemically dependent writer who takes a job as a "helper elf" at Macy's Santaland, the one-man show features stressed-out sales clerks and drunken Santas. It's soooo not heart-warming, and we mean that as a compliment. It runs through Dec. 28 and the ticket price is pay-what-you-can at the door, 211 Third St. S, St. Petersburg; americanstage.org.
