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.

As the description states, this play goes through the events of "A Christmas Carol" from the point of view of Jacob Marley, the ghost of Scrooge's former partner.
The play was quite enjoyable and heart-warming and the acting was superb for the most part. Even though the play lacks a real set, the actors do a pretty good job of helping the audience visualize the events, and their use of lighting definitely adds to that.
This is the first play I've been to that functions as much as a narrative as it does a play, with all actors playing and narrating the events of the characters they portray. That in itself made the experience pretty unique for me.
This show contains some scary parts and is recommended for ages 10 and up, at parents' discretion.
The show runs approximately one hour and 20 minutes.
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.
