"The Santaland Diaries"

By David Sedaris adapted by Joe Mantello

Directed by Ainsley Anderson

Back by popular demand, reprising his role from 2009, Sam Murn returns to Alley Stage in Mineral Point as Crumpet, the Macy's Holiday Elf. In “The Santaland Diaries,” David Sedaris shares memories of his experiences working as an elf at Macy’s during the holiday season. Not intended for young audiences, “The Santaland Diaries” showcases Sedaris’s sardonic humor with stories that will not disappoint. The New York Times calls it "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."
