The Santaland Diaries
A comedy by David Sedaris
Directed by Argo Thompson
December 8 - 23, 2017
A delightfully thorny account of working as a Yuletide elf at Macy's. Priceless observations, both outrageous and subtle. Destined to hold a place in the annals of American humor writing.
THE STORY: David Yen is back as Crumpet the Elf for his tenth annual and final production of best-selling author David Sedaris’ sardonic comedy. This wry tale is based on the outlandish, and true, chronicles of Sedaris’ brief stint as an elf in Macy’s SantaLand. His hysterical, behind-the-scenes anecdotes are a holiday treat for adults, mercilessly cutting through the sticky-sweetness of Christmas to illuminate the insanity of the holidays and the resilience of the human spirit.
