After 17 seasons (plus a one-year hiatus), Hell in a Handbag's regularly updated annual production of Rudolph the Red-Hosed Reindeer is almost as much a Christmas tradition as its animated inspiration. This year is its first without longtime Handbag ensemble member Matthew Gunnels, who died of cancer last month. The cast honors him with a hilarious, raucous show during which Rudolph comes to accept his natural flair for accessorizing, Herbie the Elf finds his own way of being gay, Ruth Claus overcomes her drinking problem, and everyone learns that being normal is overrated. The actors vamp and camp and belt wholeheartedly, despite the small stage at Mary's Attic. A warning: sit too close and you'll see parts of Santa you can't ever unsee. —Aimee Levitt
