Come and laugh the recession away with the humor of David Sedaris' The Santaland Diaries. Presented by C.A.F.E. (Combined Art Form Entertainment) and Beck-n-Call at Off-Market Theater. Now on its seventh year, John Michael Beck, up from L.A. and David Sinaiko, are back again, bringing life to David Sedaris' signature character, Crumpet the Elf...much to the delight of Bay Area audiences. Come see the show that critics and audiences love and keep coming back for more. So come spend the holidays with C.A.F.E. at the Off-Market Theater. "Deliciously delivered by the talented (and adorable) David Sinaiko...the impossible (but true) story becomes all too real. He embodies a youthful exuberance, clear intelligence, and savvy sarcasm. And his strong stage presence whisks the audience away (NOT in a manger) on this wild ride." - Tom Kelly, Bay Area Times For those not familiar with the Sedaris piece, this production will offer the best opportunity to view what New York Newsday called, "A sardonic, merrily subversive tale - just the antidote to bright-eyed joy before too many shopping days have passed. Worth more than a photo album full of Santas!" Called by some as "America's premiere humorist", Sedaris creates a brilliant evocation of Christmas as seen from the other side ...through the eyes of a Macy's elf. Our hero confronts the screaming children, bossy parents, flaky elves, and apathetic Santas with hilarious results!
