Show Description:
Christmas Eve. Washington, D.C. 1864. It’s the coldest December in memory and the country is in the last throes of war. In and around the nation’s capital an escaped slave searches for her daughter, the first lady searches for a Christmas tree, a Union officer’s character is challenged by a young confederate, conspirators plan an assassination, and the President prepares his inaugural address while riding on horseback to retrieve a Christmas gift for his wife. This musical by Pulitzer Prize–winner Paula Vogel is a broad tapestry that weaves together many characters, story lines, and pieces of music including spirituals, carols, and a setting of the Kaddish. A CIVIL WAR CHRISTMAS reveals the universal and unifying themes of hope, joy, and the beauty of the human spirit.
