The Santaland Diaries is a brilliant evocation of what a slacker's Christmas must feel like.
Out of work, our slacker decides to become a Macy's elf during the holiday crunch. At first the job is simply humiliating, but once the thousands of visitors start pouring through Santa's workshop, he becomes battle weary and bitter. The piece ends with yet another Santa being ushered into the workshop, but this one is different. This Santa actually seems to care about and love the children who come to see him, startling our hero into an uncharacteristic moment of goodwill just before his employment runs out.
Accompanying Santaland Diaries, are TWO hilarious monologues that will have you bending over with laughter. Season’s Greetings and Front Row Center With Thadeuss Bristol are two funny, touching – and peculiar – monologues about the holiday season.
All three of these holiday treats are being directed by Jennie Magon. Santaland Diaries & Season’s Greetings star Erin Rivlin-Sakata and George Chavez II who both previously appeared in the smash hit I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change. Front Row Center With Thadeuss Bristol will feature a surprise guest actor that you have to see to believe!
