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.

The Bathhouse Theater is a wonderful intimate little theater. I highly recommend seeing a play at this theater at your earliest possible convenience. This goes doubly so for "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead." Angela DiMarco and Alyssa Keene are brilliant in their roles as Guildenstern and Rosencrantz.
Audiences will laugh (and cry) their way into the New Year with Tom Stoppard’s Tony Award-winning comedy, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead. Zany humor, quicksilver wordplay, gripping tension and a heady swirl of ideas all come together in this story of two nobodies who long to star in their own story.
SPT's revival, directed by Artistic and Education Director Shana Bestock, casts local actresses in traditionally male roles. Angela DiMarco (The 13th of Paris) and Alyssa Keene (Jacob Marley’s Christmas Carol) take on Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, with Heather Hawkins (End Days, Mauritius) as The Player.
The cast also features Matt Aguayo, Ray Gonzalez, Julie Jamieson (Arms and the Man), Kenna Kettrick (The Best Christmas Pageant Ever), Patrick Lennon (Jacob Marley's Christmas Carol), Jessa Lowe, John Murray (Of Mice and Men, Mauritius) and Duncan Weinland (The Best Christmas Pageant Ever).
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.
