About This Show

Just in time for Christmas, Clancy Productions presents The Truth About Santa, a new play with music by Tony Award Winner Greg Kotis (Urinetown). John Clancy directs this refreshingly apocalyptic holiday tale.

Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus! And the terrible truth about who he is, how he treats his elves, and what his home life has become will all be revealed in The Truth About Santa. Will this Christmas be Santa’s last? Will Mrs. Claus finally make good on her threat to submerge humanity in a lake of fire? Who are these children and where did they get their strange powers?

Please note: although this dysfunctional family comedy features children, it is NOT FOR CHILDREN — adults and extremely skeptical tweens only, please.

Greg Kotis’ alternative holiday show only manages to be fitfully funny, but brims with homespun charm.
