Based on the David Sedaris book, Frank Theatre's production of The Santaland Diaries has been described by the Washington Post as "unforgettable...an autobiographical confession of a penniless, gay, would-be soap opera writer named Crumpet working as an elf at Macy's mega-department store on Herald Square in New York."
This is the same night as Lavender Night in Mason's Restaurant, which means there will be free appetizers and happy hour specials before the show. Everyone is welcome.
Tickets are $29. Event host Dana Munson has set up a special for us to receive 20% off when we use code word 'crumpet'.
Frank Theatre is celebrating their 25th Anniversary Season.
If you've never seen a Frank production before, you're in for a real treat.
Here's what the Strib says:
“If you're looking for holiday entertainment that's more tart than treacly, more snarky than sweet, prepare to make merry at Frank Theatre's "The Santaland Diaries"…This lively production, under the direction of Wendy Knox, has a wonderfully cartoon-like look, complete with Steve Rohde's recreation of Santaland and Kathy Kohl's gaudy elf costume, including curly-toed shoes. ..Joe Leary does a stellar job with the variety of characters that inhabit this play, embodying some particularly amusing Santas, over-wrought parents and freakish coworkers.” –StarTribune
