About this show

Santa Claus Is Coming Out...or How the Gay Agenda Came Down My Chimney is writer/solo performer Jeffrey Solomon's theatrical mockumentary about the secret life of Santa Claus. The production is directed by Emily Weiner with original music by Andrew Ingkavet and Jason Webb. Santa Claus is Coming Out is a mock-u-mentary about the worldwide scandal surrounding the outing of Santa Claus. With the help of puppets, multimedia and music, writer-performer Jeffrey Solomon traces the intensely personal struggle of the great holiday icon, as he tries to reconcile his love relationship with Italian toy maker Giovanni Geppetto with his passion for giving to the world's children. But word of Santa's secret leaks out and the "Light A Fire For Family Values" campaign marshals its forces against him. Is that rainbow sticker on Santa's sleigh merely part of a new sense of pride or evidence of an insidious plot to indoctrinate the world's children into the homosexual lifestyle? In the documentary theater style popularized by Anna Deavere Smith and The Laramie Project, Mr. Solomon purports to have interviewed all the key players in the incident that has come to be known as Santa-gate. and portrays over a dozen of them, including a macho elf foreman, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, Santa's hard-boiled old-school agent, his pretentious fake actress/wife and an Eminem-style rapper.
