See Santaland from viewpoint of his elves
Play opens Friday in Atlanta
“The Santaland Diaries” reappears this weekend at Horizon Theatre in Atlanta. Starring in the Christmas play are, from left, Enoch King, Harold M. Leaver and LaLa Cochran.
Back for its 15th anniversary production, Horizon Theatre Company turns “ho ho ho” into “ha ha ha” as it reprises its popular production of “The Santaland Diaries” by award-winning satirist David Sedaris. The merry misanthrope, played by Harold M. Leaver, recounts the tale of an out-of-work writer working as a Macy’s department store elf named Crumpet. Besieged by bratty children with overzealous parents and donning a humiliating costume, Crumpet finds his cynical self and elfin alter ego are not exactly compatible.
