The Circuit Playhouse

By David Sedaris
Adapted by Joe Mantello

The world’s crankiest elf is coming back to The Circuit Playhouse! Crumpet, Macy’s grumpiest Christmas elf, and his fellow elves will once again be taking residence in the Memphian Room this holiday season. Share drinks with friends as Crumpet recounts his training and his hilarious encounters with surly parents and their greedy children! With a healthy dose of sarcasm and snark, Crumpet manages to reveal the shortcomings of the hustle and bustle surrounding the holidays while gently reminding us of the true meaning of the season. This intimate cabaret-style performance is a night at the theatre like no other.
