The Santaland Diaries  
Santa Monica Playhouse The Santaland Diaries
 
Craving a little splash of vodka in your Christmas cheer? Prefer watching Bad Santa over It's a Wonderful Life? Think naughty > nice? David Sedaris sympathizes. In 1992, the now-famous humorist wrote an autobiographical essay about being broke and working as an elf at the massive Macy's department store in New York. The essay was adapted into a one-man show, and it's now the funniest, most irreverent anti-holiday classic. If you need a break from a crazy family, mall madness or cloying carols, Patrick Censoplano dons the candy-cane tights for a heaping dose of (anti)holiday hilarity in The Santaland Diaries at The Other Space at Santa Monica Playhouse. Arrive half an hour early for a little extra cheer -- your ticket includes a pre-show toast with a glass of champagne or nonalcoholic eggnog. This show is not suitable for children younger than age 15.

1976  
La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts 1976
 
If Hamilton's mix of hummable tunes and fascinating history has left you itching to learn more about our nation's founding, then this Tony-winning Revolutionary musical drama just might be the ticket. 1776 takes you behind the scenes of the historic signing of the Declaration of Independence, as John Adams tried to persuade his fellow forefathers to vote for freedom from British rule. Also making appearances are colonial superstars like Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, John Hancock and Abigail Adams, along with a variety of crabby drunks, befuddled secretaries and assorted sycophants who also populate the proceedings. Pairing a funny, insightful story with a striking score, 1776 is a triumphant celebration of the American spirit that'll stir romance, comedy and conflict into a musical melting pot at the La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts.

Dorothy Chandler Pavilion La Traviata
 
There's a reason that Verdi's tragic romance La Traviata is one of the most popular operas on the planet. Of course, there's the music, with exquisite arias like "Sempre libera" and the mournful "Addio del passato." Then there's the bittersweet love story of the beautiful, pleasure-loving yet frail courtesan Violetta (played by soprano Adela Zaharia), who unexpectedly finds true (and ultimately tragic) love with a younger man. But above all, what sets La Traviata in a league of its own is its humanity and its heart. It's a truly timeless tale of moral hypocrisy and selfless sacrifice, and in the character of Violetta, Verdi has given us one of opera's most fascinating heroines, a woman of boundless humanity and emotional depth. Now LA Opera brings this iconic 1853 opera to the stage -- and you can get tickets first with this exclusive pre-sale.

In this Steppenwolf Theatre Company production, Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning playwright Tracy Letts delivers a "male midlife crisis tragicomedy of epic proportions" (Chicago Sun Times) in this "smart, very funny, hugely entertaining play" (Daily Herald) that resonates with a new sense of sobriety in the wake of #MeToo.

Othello  
A Noise Within Othello
 
As part of their 2018-2019 theme "Let Me In," about the deeply human need to be understood for who we are, Pasadena’s A Noise Within theater company presents Othello. Arguably Shakespeare’s most intimate of family tragedies, it’s the tale of the breakdown of a man who has everything — power, position and love — only to find his world decimated through intense mind games with his malicious ensign. Prescient in its searing social commentary of prejudice, betrayal and thwarted ambition, Shakespeare’s thunderous drama examines who we trust and the price we pay when we make the wrong choice.

Steambath  
Odyssey Theatre Ensemble Steambath
 
This play presents the afterlife as a steambath, in which recently deceased souls (who may not in every case realize that they're dead) continue to obsess about the same petty concerns that obsessed them in their lives. Ultimately, they are cast into another room offstage which is represented by a dark void by God, the steambath's Puerto Rican attendant and with the help of his assistant Gottlieb. In the play, the new arrival Tandy at first refuses to accept what's happened, and when he finally does, he pleads to be allowed to return to his life. Steambath was controversial when first produced for its obscene language, its satirical take on religion and some brief nudity. Now you can catch it on the stage of the Odyssey Theatre in Los Angeles.
