You can expect a lot of laughs this year's Lamb's Players' Festival of Christmas show, when a woman's plan to film a musical Christmas card goes hilariously awry. In Catch a Falling Star, Ella Eden has located the remote miner's cabin where her father spent one magical Christmas, and now she's bringing in a band to put together the ultimate Christmas card on location. With the special setting, under a gorgeous canopy of stars, it's going to be the perfect gift. Too bad her kids are running wild, neither the nanny nor the lead singer have shown up and cell phone reception is nonexistent. As things get more chaotic, they also become ever more comical, but the magic and music of Christmas will triumph in the end. Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
In 1999, Lamb's Players produced the premiere of Tim Slover's historical backstage drama Joyful Noise, about the surprising story behind the creation of one of the greatest works of all time, Handel's Messiah. The result was a runaway hit that traveled to New York for an extended run Off-Broadway and productions at other theatres around the nation.
Now for the first time in a decade, Lamb's Players is pleased to return to this witty, compelling look at the story behind one of the world's most beloved pieces of sacred music — whose journey to the stage was anything but sacred. Both George Fredrick Handel and singer Susannah Cibber are at the low point of their careers when a new libretto arrives unexpectedly on the composer's doorstep. Politics, piety, envy, scandal, and oversized egos collide and combust in this mesmerizing true story of heavenly art - and the very flawed humans who created it.
