About this show

Inspired by America's culture wars, this solo mock-u-mentary lays bare the intensely personal struggle of Santa Claus as he tries to reconcile his love with Italian toy-maker Giovanni Geppedo (creator of Pinocchio) with his passion for giving to the world's children. It starts when Gary, a not altogether manly little boy, asks for a doll, gets a truck, and thinks he's been bad. Gary's quiet letter of complaint shakes St. Nick to the soul as he recalls his fearful childhood during the middle ages and regrets the promotional deals with Coca-Cola that force him to stay in the closet. But word of Santa's secret leaks out and the "forces of decency" rally against what they perceive to be the ultimate plot to indoctrinate children into the homosexual lifestyle! Solomon impersonates little gay Gary, his confused mother, his angry dad, his sassy black girlfriend, a kindly Rudolph, his fake-actress wife and other wacky characters.
