The Chance Theater is definitely on the naughty list this season, if only for their annual production of Jeff Goode's ridiculously cheeky The Eight: Reindeer Monologues. Get a behind-the-sleigh look at what really happens at Santa's workshop—harassment, rumors, lecherous advances—straight from the reindeers themselves, and they've got a lot to bitch about. If you haven't seen this slightly offensive, completely provocative holiday romp, now is the time—and if you've seen it once, come back for more because with a roster of rotating actors, no two shows are the same. So hang the stockings with care, put out a plate of cookies and a glass of milk, and be sure to keep that pepper spray close by.
