David Sedaris’ entertaining 1992 holiday memoir, detailing his misadventures working as a Macy’s Christmas elf, has become a national holiday staple in Joe Mantello’s stage adaptation. Flashpoint Theatre Company presents the one-man show for the 10th consecutive year, starring Barrymore Award-nominated Keith Conallen and directed by Barrymore winner Matt Pfeiffer. Conallen’s talents for sardonic delivery and hapless abandon — while also earning our empathy — are tailor-made for Sedaris’ homespun storytelling.
