In a wonderful spin on the classic A Christmas Carol, box maker Conrad Ticklebottom’s life has hit a block. Once, Conrad and his purple box ignited an entire movement in art and design, but now he finds himself alone, forgotten and teetering on ruin. The holidays bring three magical figures to his door — a trio of Liza Minnelli’s to escort him on a fabulous journey — through what-was, what-could-be and what-the-h*ll — redeeming his lost promise and re-inventing a brand-new man.

It’s 1864, and Washington, D.C. is settling down to the coldest Christmas Eve in years. In the White House, President and Mrs. Lincoln plot their gift-giving. On the banks of the Potomac, a young rebel challenges a Union blacksmith’s mercy. In the alleys downtown, an escaped slave loses her daughter just before finding freedom. This musical by Pulitzer Prize-winner Paula Vogel intertwines many lives, showing us that the gladness of one’s heart is the best gift of all.


This lavish musical set in New York during the Great Depression, tells the story of Mame Dennis, an eccentric bohemian woman of wealth whose life is interrupted when the son of her late brother comes to live with her. Through the trials and tribulations of finding and losing love, and the ups and downs of the struggling economy, Mame tries her best to keep up her usual fabulous flair and share it with those around her.
