CityRep Presents THE SANTALAND DIARIES at CitySpace Theatre, 12/18-12/20

Joe Mantello's adaptation of snap-witted American essayist David Sedaris' "The SantaLand Diaries" is a true and humorous account of Sedaris' stint working as "Crumpet the Elf" in Macy's department store during the busy holidy season.  This one-man show recounts, in inglorious detail, Sedaris' uproarious misgivings and misadventures as only he can tell them! The show is rated R.
