    "Head and shoulders above most
    so-called holiday musicals. RECOMMENDED"

  • A Christmas Memory | Opens Nov. 27th

    “If you're in a 'bah, humbug' mood this holiday season, A Christmas Memory may
    be just the remedy…it is an entertaining and heartwarming theatrical work that is just
    PERFECT FOR THE HOLIDAYS.” San Jose Mercury News

    Los Angeles Premiere

    Sure to delight the entire family, Truman Capote’s enchanting Depression-era story
    springs to life in this big-hearted musical treat. A wistful memoir of cherished youth,
    it chronicles the 1930s friendship of a shy boy, Buddy, and his eccentric cousin Sook
    —misfits who launch kites, haunt speakeasies, and mail fruitcakes to everyone from
    Jean Harlow to President Roosevelt! A Christmas Memory celebrates friendship, the
    simple pleasures of life and the joy of giving.
