New York Times best-selling author and NPR humorist David Sedaris (Me Talk Pretty One Day) captures the madness of the holiday shopping season in his hit solo show The Santaland Diaries, a hilarious send-up of his brief, misguided career as a Macy's elf. Twin Cities actor Joe Leary reprises his role as Crumpet the Elf in this comic Yuletide tale that delightfully skewers parents, children and holiday consumerism. At first, Sedaris' seasonal job as a department store elf is simply humiliating, but once the thousands of visitors start pouring through Santa's Workshop, he becomes battle-weary and bitter, comically taking out his frustrations on children and parents alike. Sedaris' witty observations about his encounters as an elf during the season of forced joy have become a Christmastime cult classic for those in need of a holiday cheer antidote. Learn More
