The Most Wonderful Time of the Year... for Some!
by David Sedaris
December 8 thru 24
“Pay What You Can” dates are Dec 8 and 9
"Brian Shea in Santaland Diaries is so far the highlight of my Christmas season. I do not expect anything will surpass it in the days ahead." –Marty Clear, Tampa Bay Times
American Stage Theatre Company continues its Holiday "After Hours" series with David Sedaris' The Santaland Diaries.
The holiday season has been called the most wonderful time of the year. Not so says Crumpet, the unemployed, chemically dependent writer who takes a job as a "helper elf" at Macy's Santaland in NYC! His tale of mass marketing, stressed out sales clerks, drunken Santas, screaming kids and the general insanity of the holidays is hilarious and meant for mature audiences only.
A favorite of NPR, and award-winning author of such books as "When You Are Engulfed in Flames," Sedaris' cutting, sardonic wit is on full display with this one-man show starring local favorite Brian Shea (Othello & August: Osage County). A must see hit for anyone who views the holiday season a little differently from what the television wants us to believe.
Tickets: $19 for general admission. Performed on our Mainstage, where of course, there will be full cash bar service for all our patrons.
