The Gifts of the Magi

A heart-warming, captivating musical treat, The Gifts of the Magi is easy to stage, warmed by sentiment and humor, filled with lilting songs, and certain to please audiences of all ages.
It is Christmas in New York, but for two young lovers, Jim and Della, the prospects are bleak, as both are out of work and penniless. But as those familiar with the famous O. Henry story are aware, their dilemma is solved when both part with their most precious possessions (she her beautiful long hair, he his heirloom pocket watch) in order to buy presents for each other thereby creating, at least for a magical moment, an aura of warmth and giving in the cold, impersonal winter city.
“An intimate and beautiful musical adaptation of O. Henry’s classic stories. The score is beautiful and the story is perfect for a company looking for an alternative to A Christmas Carol or Nutcracker.” 
Tom Berger, Director/Producer, Seven Ages Theatricals, Sheboygan, WI
