Tonight is the last chance this year to catch Open Eye Figure Theatre's holiday show, and it'll be a warm, brainy, weird antidote to the seasonal onrush (and you probably need one). Michael Sommers, Open Eye's resident Merlin, reprises his role as Lucifer; the sulfurous one is spitting mad over the birth of Jesus, the Almighty's preference for mortals, and his own proclivities for slapstick happenstance. This one-hour journey has been configured this year for Open Eye's own intimate dream-space, and if you haven't visited there yet, tonight's the chance. Plus, they ply you with cider and cookies.
Thursdays, Fridays, 7:30 p.m.; Saturdays, Sundays, 2 & 7:30 p.m.; Tuesdays, Wednesdays, 2 & 7:30 p.m. Starts: Dec. 4. Continues through Dec. 23, 2009
