Before he was one of America's best-known humorists, David Sedaris (Me Talk Pretty One Day) was Crumpet, an elf at Macy's in Manhattan. He got his big break by sharing hilarious anecdotes about that experience in his sardonic essay The Santaland Diaries. And for the fourth time, CATCO's Jon Putnam will take on the one-man play adapted from that essay, which has become a critically acclaimed anti-holiday classic. Hopefully, Santaland will bring some levity to that dreaded trip to the seventh level of suburban shopping hell we all have to make this season.
