Brian Shea stars in the American Stage production of “The Santaland Diaries.”

The Grinches, the Scrooges and the Charlie Browns of the Christmas season can add one more cynic to the club — Crumpet. David Sedaris' sardonic wit is at its sharpest in American Stage's The Santaland Diaries, a one-man show based on his essay about the unemployed, chemically dependent writer who takes a job as a "helper elf" at Macy's Santaland in New York. Brian Shea returns as the acerbic misanthrope, who will endear himself to anyone who's considered stashing a flask to wait in line to see Santa. The show is at 8 p.m. Sundays through Tuesdays until Dec. 29 at American Stage Theatre, 163 Third St. N, St. Petersburg. (727) 823-7529. americanstage.org.
