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.

The Twentieth Century Way was awarded the 2011 PEN Award for Drama and the 2010 NY International Fringe Festival Award for Overall Excellence in Production of a Play, garnering critical accolades from publications like the New York Times and Variety. Based on a little-known incident in history, this theatrical thrill ride explores the collision of reality and fantasy as two actors, auditioning for a film, end up juggling roles that eventually lead to entrapment of homosexuals for "social vagrancy" in the Long Beach, California of 1914.
