About this show

EXTENDED THROUGH JANUARY 7TH! Returning for a fifth year from a Macy's or Bloomingdales near you, tis the season for David Sedaris's Santaland Diaries presented by Steinbeck presents and C.A.F.E. (Combined Art Form Entertainment) at Off Market Theater in San Francisco. John Michael Beck, up from L.A., and local actor David Sinaiko bring life to David Sedaris's signature character, Crumpet the Elf...much to the delight of Bay Area audiences. "Actor John Michael Beck...hilariously mine[s] the myriad humiliations...effectively highlight[s] the fact that here in one spangled orgy of relentless seasonal joy dwells all the Christmas spirit that money can buy." -- The Metro (San Jose) "David Sedaris's satirical The Santaland Diaries is wonderfully told by one of San Francisco's most talented comic actors, John Michael Beck." -- Richard Connema, "deliciously delivered by the talented (and adorable) David Sinaiko...(where)...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
