Santaland Diaries, Circuit Playhouse, Friday – Sunday, times vary, $25, ages 13+
If you’re more of a bah-humbug person, or if your definition of holiday cheer includes the sharp wit and sarcastic humor of David Sedaris, you need to see Santaland Diaries in its final weekend. Jonathan Christian stars as Crumpet in this hilarious one-man show all about a department store elf. I saw this production a few weeks ago, and laughed all the way through. It’s performed in the Memphian Room, where you sit at tables and order drinks before and during the show, which adds to the fun and casual but intimate nature of experience.
All Weekend incl. ongoing holiday events and shows (check links for exact days and times):
– Junie B. Jones The Musical at Circuit Playhouse (through Dec. 23)
– Peter Pan at Playhouse on the Square (through Dec. 31)
– Santaland Diaries at Circuit Playhouse opens Dec. 1 (through Dec. 23) – This is absolutely hilarious and wonderful and you should go immediately.
