Here’s a treat for Buffy fans. Nicholas Brendon, who played Xander in the hit series Buffy the Vampire Slayer, is starring in a one man play called The Santaland Diaries. The show takes placed at The Blank’s 2nd Stage Theatre in Hollywood, and opens this weekend.
He looks…very elfy. Good for him, to carry an entire show all by himself. This definitely sounds fun.
From the theatre that brought you the year-long sold-out run of David & Amy Sedaris’ THE BOOK OF LIZ, THE SANTALAND DIARIES is an outrageously funny one-man play by NPR’s well-loved humorist David Sedaris, about Sedaris’ experiences as an unemployed writer taking a job as an elf at Macy’s. At first the job is simply humiliating, but once the thousands of visitors start pouring through Santa’s workshop, he becomes battle weary and bitter, occasionally taking out his frustrations on the children and parents alike.
Tickets are $25 and can be purchased at www.TheBlank.com or by calling (323) 661-9827. THE SANTALAND DIARIES will run on a Thursday-Saturday schedule at 8pm, and Sunday at 2pm through December 20. There will be a special performance November 24 at 8pm, and no performance on Thursday, November 26.
