Every year, audiences return to The Santaland Diaries — just like little kids line up every Christmas to see Santa at the mall. Director B.D. Bethune and actor Doug Kusak reprise their roles in Cleveland Public Theatre’s production of David Sedaris’ holiday staple. Kusak plays Crumpet, a 33-year-old Macy’s elf who sports “green velvet knickers, a forest-green velvet smock and a perky little hat decorated with spangles” and drips sarcasm over his minimum-wage job. It opens at 7:30 tonight with performances running through December 19 at Cleveland Public Theatre (6415 Detroit Ave., 216.631.2727). Tickets: $10-$30. — Michael Gill
