adapted for the stage by Joe Mantello
directed by Stephanie Coltrin
performed by Brian McDonald
Outrageous, outlandish and irreverent, this comedy by NPR humorist and best-selling author David Sedaris has been dubbed “the 24 funniest pages ever written in the English language.” This true story recounts the tale of an unemployed writer, desperate for work, who takes a job as an elf at Macy’s Santaland in NYC. Brian McDonald stars as the beleaguered elf Crumpet (a rebel without a Claus), who does his best to keep Christmas in his heart while dealing with the humiliation of elf training, stressed-out shoppers, screaming kids and general holiday mayhem. Performed in a cabaret setting in Rubicon’s downstairs reception hall, this production is sure to be a sell-out!
