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

Very powerful theatre experience. All actors were great, but standouts -- Charles Norris as Franco, Kevin McKeon as Arthur were perfect as employee/employer then fully developed friends.
The support roles had realife stories to play out and make you feel apart of Chicago in the 60s. Well done!
This show contains some coarse language and is thematically appropriate for those age 10 and older.
October 14, 2012 at 2:00pm: A town hall discussion moderated by Seattle Deputy Mayor Darryl Smith follows the show. Topics include the themes of community presented in Superior Donuts, and how the play reflects our own ever-shifting cultural landscape.
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.
