TysonsToday Staff Around Town, Art & Culture, Lifestyle

November 29-December 23, 2018

Written by Paula Vogel, Directed by Deidra LaWan Starnes

It’s 1864 and Washington, D.C. is settling down to the coldest Christmas Eve in years. “History lessons and holiday warmth sit cozily alongside each other” (The New York Times) in this pageant of carols by Paula Vogel, the Pulitzer Prize-winning writer of Indecent. Stories of many intertwining lives– spanning from the battlegrounds of Northern Virginia to the halls of the White House– demonstrate that the gladness of one’s heart is the best gift of all. This “rich and moving play with music” (Variety) is a treat the whole family will enjoy.
