When it was first broadcast, it generated more requests for tapes than any story in Morning Edition’s history except the death of Red Barber. It was brought to life off-Broadway, and now stage and screen personality Matthew Wrather dons the candy-cane tights for the holidays in this outrageously funny one-man play about the author’s experiences as an unemployed writer taking a job as an elf at Macy’s department store in New York City. This delightfully tart tale takes a wry look at how the holiday season brings out the best – and the worst – in us all. The SantaLand Diaries, adapted by Joe Montello from renowned author David Sedaris’s well-loved story, is helmed by international acclaimed director Chris DeCarlo, with appropriately cheerful holiday costumes by Ashley Hayes and outrageous yuletide set by James Cooper. Perfect for date night, group parties and for anyone who wants to joyously celebrate, or cheerfully denigrate, the holidays in a unique and special way. Not suitable for under 15 years old. Toast the holidays with pre-show champagne or non-alcoholic eggnog, included in your ticket price!
