The Santaland Diaries

By David Sedaris

Directed by Michele Gerard Good

Based upon biting, satirical essayist, David Sedaris’ actual diaries documenting his stint as “Blisters”, a bitter, depressed Macy’s elf, The Santaland Diaries is an irreverent, philosophical, thought-provoking and hilarious social commentary on the modern, commercialized Christmas. Featuring a singing/dancing cast of elves, harried shoppers and a go-go dancing reindeer or two. Due to the sophisticated nature of the material, this show is rated PG-13 for language.
