The Santaland Diaries
by David Sedaris, adapted for the stage by Joe Mantello , performed by Joe Brack
EXTENDED - 4 SHOWS ADDED! Dec. 28 - 31
Based on the outlandish, true chronicles of David Sedaris' experience as an elf in Macy's Santaland, this cult classic riffs on Sedaris' truly odd encounters with his fellow man during the height of the holiday crunch. NPR humorist and best-selling author of When You Are Engulfed in Flames, Me Talk Pretty One Day and Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim, David Sedaris has become one of America's pre-eminent humorists.
Joe Brack has performed The Santaland Diaries for several years in Washington, DC under the direction of Matty Griffiths. Each year they explore this rich, true life text to find a fresh take on this off beat holiday classic. They let the audience draw on vivid memories - from childhood to that day's trip to the shopping mall - while the story winds it's way deeper behind the scenes. Come see what it takes to juggle tots and tottering Santas during the most festive time of the year. A laugh 'til you cry evening of merrily subversive entertainment!
THE SANTALAND DIARIES is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.
