The Santaland Diaries


David Sedaris' The Santaland Diaries
Adapted by Joe Mantello
Directed by Steve Scott 
November 30 - December 30, 2018

This holiday season, Goodman Theatre presents The Santaland DiariesDavid Sedaris’ “vivid, hilarious portrait of family Christmas with his deft combination of wicked humor and scalpel-sharp observation” (Chicago Magazine). Adapted by Joe Mantello and directed by longtime Goodman Artistic Associate Steve Scott, this “theatrical stocking stuffer” (Chicago Reader) is perfect for those who prefer their eggnog spiked. Chicago favorite Matt Crowle makes his Goodman debut in a solo performance as the strapped-for-cash struggling actor who takes a job as “Crumpet,” an elf at Macy’s Santaland—and his hilarious observations are more naughty than nice.
