Event Details

In this hilarious and at times touching one-person show Little Gary’s gender-atypical gift request, sent to the North Pole, is denied. A series of subsequent heart-felt letters from the child nudge Santa Claus out of the closet and right into the center of a heated culture war.

Playwright Jeffrey Solomon, a theatrical documentarian in the mold of Anna Deveare Smith, lovingly sends up the form, purporting to have interviewed all the key players in the scandal known as “Santa-Gate!”

The Santa Closet is a funny, sensitive and imaginative tale that pulls at the holiday heartstrings while asking the question  “How do we speak honestly and openly to children, and each other, about LGBTQ+ lives and issues”? If you liked The Santaland Diaries, you will love The Santa Closet!

This limited run will feature a reduced capacity of 27 seats per performance, in accordance with CDC guidelines.  A streaming version will also be available.
