BWW Review: THE SANTALAND DIARIES Is an Adult Christmas TreatBWW Review: THE SANTALAND DIARIES Is an Adult Christmas Treat
by Frank Benge - Nov 30, 2015

David Sedaris wrote 'SantaLand Diaries', an essay that is a humorous account of Sedaris' stint working as a Christmas elf in 'SantaLand' at Macy's department store. Sedaris first read the essay on NPR's Morning Edition on December 23, 1992. Well-received, it became Sedaris' first major break. In 1996, Joe Mantello adapted Sedaris' essay for the stage as a one-man, one-act play, which debuted (as The Santaland Diaries) at the Atlantic Theater Company in New York on November 7, 1996. Mantello's adaptation has since become a seasonal staple of regional, college and high-school theatre. (more...)

It's the most wonderful time of the year, but who would know it from the bad Santas, naughty elves, cranky kids, and pushy parents who test Crumpet's last elfin nerve. With sardonic wit, Sedaris takes us all playfully to task for plunging into the Christmas spirit while missing the point. This is for mature elves only. (more...)

BWW Review: THE SANTALAND DIARIES at Capital FringeBWW Review: THE SANTALAND DIARIES at Capital Fringe
by Greg Alcock - Dec 7, 2015

SantaLand Diaries is arguably the defining short story that put the now iconic essayist, NPR regular, and perpetual sardonic wit, David Sedaris on the literary map back in 1992. The story was adapted as a one-man stage production by Joe Mantello (Wicked, Take Me Out, Assassins) in 1996. The tale tells Sedaris' sarcastic story of his holiday season stint as Crumpet, one of Santa's Christmas elves at Macy's flagship New York City store. Mantello's adaptation, like the original, brings us behind the scenes of Macy's famous holiday attraction, counting down the days till Christmas using Sedaris' signature cynical style. The shop talk of a 33-year old, snarky, gay, man-elf includes ridiculous memories of a crew of bitter Santas, exasperated parents, puking children and utterly confused foreign tourists. In the end, Crumpet simultaneously tears down our sugar-coated image of a child's annual visit to see Santa, while leaving us inspired that the Christmas spirit somehow manages to live on in even the most bitter of St. Nick's little helpers.
