(Dec. 15-31) Seasonal Disorder
The Washington Improv Theater has Seasonal Disorder through New Year’s Eve. The comedy troupe takes on the frightening weather, the jingle bells and all the other trappings of the holidays at Source in Northwest.

(Dec. 15-24) The Santaland Diaries
For more holiday irreverence in Northwest The Shop stages David Sedaris’ Santaland Diaries. Washington thespian Joe Brack recalls the very true, mostly unbelievably comical encounters Sedaris had with his fellow man as an elf in Macy’s Santaland in the height of the holiday crunch.

(Dec. 15-Jan. 8) Spoiler Alert: Everybody Dies
Washington’s Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company promises its latest production is “the most gleefully anti-holiday celebration of doom ever.” It’s called Spoiler Alert: Everybody Dies. Members of Chicago’s Second City help stage the black comedy that satirizes a rather sad stage in America’s young history. Word has it not everyone dies.
