    'The SantaLand Diaries'

    'The SantaLand Diaries'

    Tools

    Sat., Dec. 14, 7:30 p.m. and Sun., Dec. 15, 2 p.m.

    First read on NPR’s “Morning Edition” in 1992, David Sedaris’ essay “The SantaLand Diaries” has become an adult holiday favorite. In it, Sedaris employs his trademark dark humor to recount his experiences working as an elf in Macy’s SantaLand. Comedian, actor and former Vermont legislator Jason Lorber tours the state with a one-person stage adaptation of the story. “Nope, it’s definitely not a traditional Christmas tale,” Lorber says in a press release. “But if you want to laugh your stockings off the fireplace and enjoy classic, satirical wit, then come.” at Grange Hall Cultural Center in Waterbury Center. Mad River Valley/Waterbury (map). $20-23. Buy Tickets
