Written by David Sedaris, 'The Santaland Diaries' is a comedic alternative to traditional holiday fare. A young writer, struggling to survive in New York, signs up to be an elf at Macys during the holiday season. This off-beat glimpse into the Christmas season offers a hilarious commentary on the collision of Christmas and commerce.

David Sedaris' sardonic tale of his stint as an Elf in Macy's Santaland returns for its annual visit, starring Mitchell Fain who headed our sold-out run last year, praised by the Chicago Tribune as a "singular interpretation that feels fresh again" in a production with "just the right sensibility".
