As the Christmas countdown begins, a newly-hired elf enters the coldest circle of retail hell: Macy’s Santaland. In real life, Crumpet the Elf is an unemployed actor, but now he’s hard at work, greeting children, judging their parents, and giving us a hilarious behind-the-scenes tour of the North Pole. Packed with David Sedaris’s signature wit—and starring Actors Theatre favorite Nathan Keepers—The Santaland Diaries is a delightfully irreverent holiday classic for those of us who prefer our eggnog spiked.
