Come and laugh the recession away with the humor of David Sedaris's The Santaland Diaries. Now on its seventh year, John Michael Beck (12/24-27), up from L.A. and David Sinaiko, are back again, bringing life to David Sedaris's 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. 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.
