Santa Pause

Bill Coelius and Lusia Strus in The Truth About Santa.

Even when you see scores of plays each year, there are some theatrical experiences that remain embedded in memory. I'll never forget the gut-busting laughter that erupted from me as I watched Urinetown when it was still a little Off-Broadway musical at the American Theatre of Actors back in 2001. I enjoyed it as much as I had The Producers, which I'd seen just a month earlier.

As much as I laughed that evening, I sat bewildered throughout most of The Truth About Santa, a muddled, wannabe satire from one-half of the Urinetown creative team, Greg Kotis. My review.
