BWW Review: THE SANTALAND DIARIES at Goodman Theatre Photo BWW Review: THE SANTALAND DIARIES at Goodman Theatre
by Rachel Weinberg - Dec 8, 2019

The ceaselessly cynical Crumpet the Elf has returned to Goodman Theatre for the second year in a row. This year Steven Strafford takes the lead in David Sedaris's THE SANTALAND DIARIES under the direction of Steve Scott. While Strafford's take on David/Crumpet remains as foul-mouthed and blunt as ever, the actor's take on the role has some real vulnerability. Strafford gives us the sense that Crumpet wears his cynicism like armor, using it as a defense mechanism to combat his loneliness and discontentment with his current career status (Crumpet's declaration that being an elf seems like a a?oeterrifyinga?? job opportunity rings especially true here). Although Strafford's Crumpet has a deft emotional center, he still never compromises on the humora?'but his delivery is smartly such that audiences may land on different moments as the funniest in Sedaris's text (adapted by Joe Mantello for the stage).
