Plenty of parking, restaurants and bars within walking distance and no bad seats in the house.

We had about 45 minutes before the play to grab something to eat. The Cantina across the street was quick, service and food was good. Casual bar environment.

This is the 4th time I have seen this wonderful Holiday Tale. And We really enjoyed it. First time in this theatre and seeing this actor. Was not a disappointed. Plus we got to shop the Carlsbad Outlet Mall for a few hours before the show.

We live in Carlsbad and are grateful to be introduced to the New Village Arts productions. Very professional production and set in a comfortable theater.. Great interpretation of David Sedaris 's material. We are familiar with David Sedaris'...continued

Quotes & Highlights

“Scott’s droll timing, his accents and an especially good Billie Holiday impersonation (a scatting arrangement of “Away in a Manger”) endear him to the audience. And for all its sharp satire, Sedaris’ writing has a basic, middle-of-the road decency and sweetness that suit Scott’s own persona." —North County Times 
“Scott, an ebullient performer with a huge expressive vocabulary, gets his imp on as Crumpet in plenty of entertaining ways” —Union Tribune
