To help usher in the Christmas season, New York solo performer Jeffrey Solomon will present “The Santa Closet” from Dec. 10-20 at the Theatre Project, 45 W. Preston St. in Baltimore. The off-Broadway comedy, which was written by Solomon, is about a little boy seeking validation and the closeted holiday icon too scared to give it.
“The Santa Closet” tells the story of Gary, a little boy who writes to Santa Claus for a fashion doll, receives a truck instead, and pens a heart-rending letter to the North Pole that stirs the great holiday icon’s soul, pushing him out of the closet and into the culture wars.
Solomon portrays all of the key players in the scandal that has come to be known as “Santa-Gate.” These include little gay Gary, his confused mom and angry dad, Kringle’s Agent Sid Green (aka “The Little Jew Who Saved Christmas”), Mary Ellen Banfield, a conservative activist who sees in Santa’s coming out a sinister attempt by the Gay Agenda to convert the world’s children into homosexuality, and others.
