Santaland Diaries is a hilarious story with a few guaranteed laughs. Not sure if the actor had a bad night but at times it felt a little disjointed which was distracting at times. The venue is lovely. Our group went to Clyde Common for happy hour...continued

What a wonderful evening with The Santaland Diaries ~ my 16 year old daughter enjoys reading David Sedaris so I thought this would be fun evening with her ~ I'm not familiar with him, but I/we enjoyed the performance. It has humor and a great...continued
