If someone is the biggest fan of Christmas, would coming to see this production put a fly in your cranberry sauce?
I actually think if you’re a fan of Christmas you’ll appreciate the show even more. It’s not the holiday that’s the problem: Ot’s the people who have to make the holiday hell for everyone around them. At the heart of this play, is a cynical man who is trying to cope with the candy-cane chaos around him, and despite the crying babies, racist parents, entitled “Santas” and overall demoralizing and humiliating experience of being an elf, he finds hope and a faint glimmer of Christmas magic.
I think if you want a holiday show that’s fun for the whole family, something that will reaffirm your belief in Christmas miracles, go see A Christmas Carol. If you want to feel warm and fuzzy and hopeful for the future, then maybe you should just make some hot chocolate and watch It’s a Wonderful Life. But if you want to have a few drinks, a few laughs, maybe be offended and definitely be reminded why this time of year can be a big pain in your elf-butt, then come see SantaLand.
