Theater Wit Re-Gifts Chicago with Sedaris' Santaland Diaries
Nov 2, 2012

The Santaland Diaries in ChicagoWhat would Chicago's list of holiday shows be without Theater Wit's always popular revival of The Santaland Diaries by David Sedaris at the top of the naughty column?

A sad holiday indeed. But fear not, because Mitchell Fain is unfurling his candy stripe tights once more for Theater Wit's ninth consecutive outing of The Santaland Diaries. Adapted for the stage by Joe Mantello, and directed by Theater Wit Artistic Director Jeremy Wechsler, The Santaland Diaries returns November 23-December 30, 2012 at Theater Wit, 1229 W. Belmont Avenue, Chicago.

Hailed as the "24 funniest pages ever written in the English language," David Sedaris' uproariously funny, true tale about his less than merry misadventures as a Christmas elf gone bad is a must-see celebration of the desperation of unemployment, the insanity of Christmas shopping and the ineffable "cheer" of the holiday spirit. Don't miss Theater Wit's annual chance to spend some one-on-one time with the irreverent Crumpet, as Santa's reluctant little helper struggles to maintain his dignity while confronted by competitive elves, scary Santas, thousands of selfish shoppers and their obnoxious kiddies during the Macy's Christmas rush.
