The halls of the Marjorie Lyons Playhouse are decked in bows of sarcasm as David Sedaris’s sardonic diatribe The Santaland Diaries fills mature audiences with Yuletide cheer and apropos humbug. Adapted from Sedaris’s popular irreverent essay, the play features actor Luke Thomas Eddy embodying the foul mouth and uncomfortable shoes of Crumpet the Elf during a scintillating one-hour, one-man performance. Tearing at a famous department store’s holiday façade like a grizzly bear rudely woken up from hibernation, Crumpet reveals the sordid lives of Santa’s little helpers as they endure the side effects of the holidays. Chock-full of one-liner chestnuts and hilarious humiliation, the show ensures audiences howl with empathy as the embittered elf rants against baffled tourists, entitled parents, and the anti-elves known as children. Like standing under sulfuric mistletoe, The Santaland Diaries gives the season both a heartfelt kiss and a swift kick in the chimney.

The fun, active group classes at Drew LeBlanc's Elite Fitness boost health and vigor under the guidance of friendly, professional trainers. Cardio workouts, such as calorie-crushing dance-based Zumba, maximize heart and lung efficiency, while the brawn-boosting Bodypump class turns everyday muscles into washboards, six-packs, and other useful household items. Diligent exercisers can fight the battle of the bulge with a weight-loss boot camp or learn to protect their neighborhoods from gangs of delinquent punching bags with kickboxing lessons. The modern fitness center also houses private shower facilities for postworkout de-salting.

With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were accidentally installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circle of hydraulic resistance machines designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage machine maneuvering and muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use body weight and fitness levels to create resistance that matches abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.

Now in its 63rd season, Shreveport Opera delights theatergoers with classic operas rendered in sumptuous visual and euphonic hues. The Merry Widow weaves a tale of frustrated love and political intrigue in fin de siècle Paris. The plot follows the diplomats of a tiny European principality as they strive to convince a wealthy widow to keep her fortune in the country by marrying one of their own. Adulterous flirtations and farcical misunderstandings spice up mercenary machinations, all set to a catchy score by Austrian composer Franz Lehár. Balcony-level seating ensures unobstructedly elevated sightlines and prevents distraction from cheapskate rabbits trying to burrow in without a ticket.

As the name suggests, Anytime Fitness is open all day and all night, seven days a week, 487 days a year.

Besides creating a safe gym atmosphere that fits your life's schedule rather than vice versa, Anytime's hours cuts down on crowds and long lines to use each club's array of cardio equipment, circuit equipment, and free weights.

Contemporary playwright Charles L. Mee's Big Love is a provocative study of sexuality, gender equality, and love. The play, a dramatic retelling of the ancient Greek myth of the Danaids, follows the story of 50 brides as they try to escape their arranged marriages by running away to Italy. The plot is thickened with a healthy helping of humor, romance, and murder as the conflict between the brides and grooms culminates in a climactic battle even more epic than Henry VIII's famous lawn-darts match with Anne Boleyn.
