Joe Montello's adaptation of The Santaland Diaries returns to Seattle Public Theater just in time for the holidays, starring audience favorite Patrick Lennon once again as David, aka Crumpet the Elf. This outrageously funny one-man show is based on author David Sedaris' essay on the trials and tribulations of working as a department store elf during the Christmas season. Told in Sedaris' inimitable sardonic style, The Santaland Diaries is steeped in caustic humor and irony that strips away the layers of frenzied holiday insanity to reveal the best and worst in us all. Sedaris delightfully skewers parents, children, holiday consumerism and even his own cynical protagonist. The show captures the true holiday spirit of excitement, stress, wonder, disillusionment, hope, disappointment and humiliation that represents, for many, the real experience of this time of year. Kelly Kitchens returns to direct. Learn More

Was surprised that the chief subject matter was homosexuality. I'm still uncomfortable watching two people of the same sex kiss. Otherwise, it was very well acted, especially by the female lead, and provoked thoughts of abandoned children.

This was an excellent production. They touched on many deep concepts, each one presented in a very realistic and nonjudgmental manner. Our teenagers thought it was very well done and would be great for other high school aged kids to see.
Directed by David Gassner, featuring Jose Abaoag, Sarah Porkalob, and Tim Smith-Stewart.
Appropriate for ages 12+ with parental consent. It's about teenagers, but there are frank discussions of sexual relationships between two young men.
About the Ticket Supplier: Seattle Public Theater
Founded in 1988, Seattle Public Theater was originally a small company that primarily toured plays in local Seattle public schools and worked with adult and at-risk youth populations to create socially conscious theater. In 2000, Seattle Public was chosen by the City of Seattle in a competitive bidding process to be the resident theater company at the historic Bathhouse. Since then Seattle Public has had a remarkable rebirth to become one of Seattle's premiere mid-sized theaters, renowned for both an ambitious education program as well as high-quality professional productions.
