This is the 4th time I have seen this wonderful Holiday Tale. And We really enjoyed it. First time in this theatre and seeing this actor. Was not a disappointed. Plus we got to shop the Carlsbad Outlet Mall for a few hours before the show.

We live in Carlsbad and are grateful to be introduced to the New Village Arts productions. Very professional production and set in a comfortable theater.. Great interpretation of David Sedaris 's material. We are familiar with David Sedaris'...continued

Quotes & Highlights

“Scott’s droll timing, his accents and an especially good Billie Holiday impersonation (a scatting arrangement of “Away in a Manger”) endear him to the audience. And for all its sharp satire, Sedaris’ writing has a basic, middle-of-the road decency and sweetness that suit Scott’s own persona." —North County Times 
“Scott, an ebullient performer with a huge expressive vocabulary, gets his imp on as Crumpet in plenty of entertaining ways” —Union Tribune
