The Santaland Diaries

12/16/2008 Reminder:

This is the last week you can catch The Santaland Diaries!


A “grownup” holiday show that runs every Wednesday through Sunday from December 3rd through December 21st.


Mile Square Theatre presents: The Santaland Diaries

Mile Square Theatre, Hudson County’s regional professional theatre in residence at Monroe Center for the Arts, brings humorist David Sedaris’s holiday story The Santaland Diaries to Shades Bar and Restaurant (720 Monroe Street).

Adapted by Tony-award winner Joe Mantello, The Santaland Diaries is Sedaris’s hilarious account of his days at Macy’s Deparment Store as Crumpet the Elf. Witty and sardonic, The Santaland Diaries is a cup of holiday eggnog that’s decidedly for grownups.

Playing the role of Crumpet is MST favorite John McAdams. McAdams is well-known for his work with Tectonic Theatre (The Laramie Project, Gross Indecency) and has many off-Broadway and regional theatre credits. He starred in the HBO film The Laramie Project. For MST, he played Iago in Othello and has been beaned by many baseballs in Craig Wright’s Foul Territory.

The Santaland Diaries will be directed by MST Artistic Director Chris O’Connor.


The show will runs from December 3rd – 21st, Wednesday through Sunday at 8pm. Tickets cost $25.

Shades Bar is located at 720 Monroe Street in Hoboken, NJ. Free parking is available. Call 201-208-7809 for reservations and more information.
