If you’re a fan of Bad Santa over It's a Wonderful Life, and if you’re a little more NAUGHTY than you are NICE – The Santaland Diaries is the show for you during this ever-annoying holiday season! In 1992, the now-famous humorist David Sedaris wrote an autobiographical essay about being broke and working as an elf in Santaland at the massive Macy's department store in New York. The essay was adapted into a one-man show, and it's now the funniest, most irreverent holiday classic EVER! If you need a break from a crazy family, mall madness and little red buckets and ringing bells, ABT alum Seth Tucker (Forever Plaid (’09) and most recently as Miss West Coast in Pageant (’16) dons his candy cane tights for a heaping dose of (anti)holiday hilarity in The Santaland Diaries in THE ENCORE at ABT. Doors open one-and-a-half hours before showtime for meal and cocktail service. Visit for ENCORE menu options.
