Thom Hofrichter sees this "merrily subversive" holiday tale as a perfect take on the highs and lows of the season.

This weekend, the First Presbyterian Theater is offering a fresh look--and a huge laugh--at the holiday season, with The Santaland Diaries.

The story is one man's satirical account of working as an elf at Macy's in New York during the holiday crunch, written by the hugely popular, contemporary American humorist, David Sedaris.

For a peek behind the scenes, WBOI's Julia Meek met with director, Thom Hofrichter and show star, Kevin Torwelle.
