The Truth About Santa Claus 

Back story. It's all about back story. I mean, some people you just don't know about, and there certainly are a lot of reasons to be, well, a little suspicious of Santa Claus. Dude creeps around at night, under the cover of a dark sky, breaking and entering at will, leaving without any notice, and who knows how much beer he boosts during any given home invasion. So Jeff Guinn decided to dig deep into Saint Nick's past and came up with The Autobiography of Santa Claus, a popular mix of scholarship and whimsy. So Roland "Butch" Caire Jr. of Artist Cooperative Theatre fame decided to take this elastic legend one step further with The Truth About Santa Claus, a one-man show of holiday proportions. So gift on that. Tickets $10.
