Photo Flash: Garret Storms Stars in WaterTower Theatre's THE SANTALAND DIARIES, Beg. Tonight
Garret Storms will make his WaterTower Theatre debut as David (Crumpet the Elf) in the David Sedaris holiday season comedy The Santaland Diaries, tonight, December 13 to 29, 2013, in the Studio Theatre at the Addison Theatre and Conference Centre. Kelsey Ervi, Assistant to the Producing Artistic Director at WaterTower Theatre, directs. BroadwayWorld has a sneak peek at Storms in costume below!
Ervi's creative team includes Jason Harris (Set Designer), Derek Whitener (Costume Designer), Kenneth Farnsworth (Lighting Designer), Charles Wallace (Props Designer) and Linsey Retcofsky (Stage Manager).
The Santaland Diaries is based on a David Sedaris essay of the same name that appears in Sedaris' 1997 collection "Holidays on Ice." The popular play has been performed at WaterTower Theatre six times (2001-2005 and 2007, 2008).
Based on the true chronicles of David Sedaris' experience as Crumpet the Elf in Macy's Santaland display, this cult classic riffs on a few of Sedaris' truly odd encounters with his fellow man during the height of the holiday crunch. NPR humorist and best-selling author of When You Are Engulfed in Flames, Me Talk Pretty One Day and Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim, David Sedaris has become one of America's pre-eminent humor writers, and this production has almost become an Addison holiday tradition.
