#17: See Santaland Diaries at Portland Center Stage

This is part of our 100 Things in 2014 challenge. Here’s the full list.

I’m a listener of This American Life, and Becky is a voracious reader, so we’re both fans of David Sedaris. Becky gave me some show tickets for Christmas, and I was excited to see The Santaland Diaries among them.


If you’re familiar with Mr. Sedaris, you won’t be surprised to hear the writing is great. There are even more laughs than you would expect from the situation, but surprisingly there are heartwarming moments as well. It’s a great show; if you can’t see it live, get the audiobook from the library, you won’t regret it.
