The Santaland Diaries

The Santaland Diaries

by David Sedaris, adapted by Joe Mantello

November 30–December 23, 2017

Dusty Loo Bon Vivant Theater

The performance runs approximately 75 minutes with no intermission and contains fog, strobe lights, and the traumatic death of a teddy bear. For mature elves only.

This holiday favorite is a humorous account of Sedaris' stint working as a Christmas elf in "Santaland" at Macy's department store. The disgruntled Crumpet returns to THEATREWORKS after a decade, starring Sammie Joe Kinnett as the snarky and hilarious elf.
