(Dec. 23-Jan. 1) A HOLIDAY HOW-TO With the holidays proximate, there's perhaps no better time for Factory Edge Theatre Works' A Holiday How-To playing Thursday and next week at Theatre Project on West Preston Street in Baltimore. The choose-your-own-musical is led by Lance, a director who only remembers he has to stage a musical once the audience arrives. Audience and cast work through the production process together in the different-every-time extravaganza.

(Dec. 23-Jan. 2) BLACK NATIVITY Black Nativity may be the same show every time, but it's a classic about a baby born in a manger set to gospel, dance, funk and jazz, so hopefully you won't mind. Theater Alliance presents the Christmas story retold from an Afro-centric perspective at H Street Playhouse in Northeast Washington through Jan. 2.

(Dec. 23) HOME ALONE RAZZED For a different kind of classic there's Home Alone with live commentary by Raspberry Brothers Thursday night at Arlington Cinema and Drafthouse on Columbia Pike. Three comedians heckle Macaulay and the Wet Bandits for your entertainment. Santa, milk and cookies will also make appearances.
