Spectrum Theatre Ensemble (STE) of Providence continues their inaugural season with THE SANTALAND DIARIES & SEASON'S GREETINGS, by David Sedaris, adapted by Joe Mantello, and directed by Clay B. Martin (Providence, RI). When a down-on-his luck wannabe actor arrives in New York City at the end of the year, the only employment he can find is at Macy's department store -- working in Santaland for the holiday season, as a reluctant, but relentlessly cheerful, elf. Newly christened a?oeCrumpeta??, our clever anti-hero shares his observations of the mayhem in front of and behind the scenes during one chaotic December, from aggressive parents and drunken Santas, to flirtatious actors, poor hygiene, and the racially charged hazards of being a a?oePointer Elf.a?? Will Crumpet find a moment of pure Christmas spirit? The perfect Christmas treat for grownups, this one-man show has been an annual tradition at theaters across the United States for the past twenty years.

This one-man show would work just as amazingly live and onstage as it does viewed online with the incredible, incredible Rob Nagle as Richard Nixon. Shot and staged in a small office (as a stand-in for Steve McQueen's beach house), Bree Pavey deftly directs Nagle as Nixon on the evening after he announces his resignation. Nagle, with this Nixon vocal mannerisms down pat, seamlessly limns Sean Waldron's fictionalized drunken evening as Nixon.
