Christmas is great, but the pre-holiday period can be crazy. In The Santaland Diaries, comic writer David Sedaris captures the madness of the holiday shopping season. This one-man send-up of Sedaris' brief, misguided career as a Macy's elf delightfully skewers parents, children and holiday consumerism. The main character even pokes a bit of fun at his own cynicism. Jamie Morris reprises his role as Crumpet the Elf after receiving A+ reviews for his performances in Las Vegas. South Florida audiences will know Morris from his his award-winning comedy Mommie Queerest, in which he played mother-from-hell Joan Crawford; his send-up of the 1980s sitcom, The Facts of Life: The Lost Episode, where he embodied the daffy housemother Mrs. Garrett and The Silence of The Clams, his parody of the Oscar-winning film, tacklingthe creepy serial killer Hannibal Lecter.

Quotes & Highlights
- "This ensemble sells the material with natural humor and tender conviction. Everyone fits like puzzle pieces into director Nicole Stodard's vision of McCarthy's tapestry of American youth, playing off each other's infectious energy. Their charms easily spread to the audience, in a production full of endearing touches and tonal shifts." --New Times
- "A well-chosen and talented cast, backed by Nicole Stodard's controlled direction, fit this exuberant play into Empire Stage's micro stage. Cabaret is as relevant as Facebook or Twitter. Thinking Cap Theatre has once again stirred up the adrenaline, this time by throwing down the genderf*ck gauntlet mocking and exposing the outmoded and self-conscious standards of sexual identity." --Around Town Magazine
The show includes stylized sexual violence and strong language.
About the Ticket Supplier: Thinking Cap Theatre
Since its founding in 2010, Thinking Cap Theatre has brought a slice of NYC's downtown theatre scene to downtown Fort Lauderdale. Thinking Cap has made a name for itself locally and nationally for tackling challenging works. The company's artistic director Nicole Stodard was named Best Director by the New Times in 2012.
Thinking Cap is devoted to experimental, provocative, and socially-conscious work. We program plays that tell compelling stories in fresh and surprising ways. Thinking Cap also aims to engage with works that treat a range of identities more accurately reflective of today's society; to dismantle norms and stereotypes through non-reactionary, honest means; and to present historical works that have rarely or never seen the light of the stage.
