The Gifts of the Magi is a charming and magical musical based on a pair of O. Henry's holiday stories. Set in 1905 New York, a pair of struggling newlyweds make personal sacrifices to purchase presents for one another in the cold and unforgiving city, before realizing that their love and devotion are the true gifts of the season. Also woven into the show is another one of O. Henry's ironic masterpieces, The Cop and the Anthem, in which a cheerful hobo does his best to get arrested so he can spend Christmas in a nice, warm jail cell. All of it is tied together by a newsboy-narrator who adds his own wry musical comments to this charming and spirited holiday show. Learn More

My wife and I live far OTP and never quite know how easy/bad parking will be for stuff like this, but Google Street View showed a parking lot across the street and it was $5, so no big deal.
Ticket pickup was quick and painless. We were warned that it was a 90-minute show with no intermission, so we hit the restrooms upstairs before heading to our seats.
I'm not sure if it was because we bought our tickets through Goldstar or it was just the luck of the draw, but our tickets were for two seats in the front row. Nice, you say? Well, no.
The tickets were for the _last two seats_ in the front row (up against the wall) and the scenery (a fake tree, specifically) blocked part of our view of the stage. Not nice. (We did notice that there was a sprinkling of empty seats in the section behind us, but climbing over people to get to them would have been rather gauche.)
I'm not an expert at these things, but I think that the actors did a good job and, overall, the production was well done.
My wife read the AWiT book as a kid and when this popped up on our radar, decided that she wanted to see the play, so I tagged along. I think it's safe to say that we both left with a "meh" reaction. Perhaps her impressionable mind has matured over the years, but on the drive home, we discussed that it was the same tired story of good vs. evil. I guess I expected more.
Based on the 1963 Newberry Medal-winning novel by Madeleine L'Engle.
