This moving musical from Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Paula Vogel (How I Learned to Drive) weaves the varied stories of a wide range of characters together into a beautiful tapestry set during one of our nation's darkest hours. There are many windows into which A Civil War Christmas allows us to peek on this particular Christmas Eve in 1864, including those of the White House, as President Lincoln attempts to retrieve his wife's forgotten presents. Meanwhile, a freed slave mourns the loss of her son who was killed in battle, and someone searches in vain for a Christmas tree only to discover they've all been cut down in order to warm the troops. In blending the bitter with the sweet, Vogel has crafted a true testament to humanity that is perhaps at its most powerful when the voices of the actors join together on songs like "Silent Night" and "O Christmas Tree."

About the Ticket Supplier: Main Street Theater
In 1975, Houston was a booming, oil-rich metropolis with a growing, sophisticated populace eager for exposure to a wide variety of cultural activities. But with only one resident theater, patrons were inevitably limited in the number and range of theatrical voices they had the opportunity to hear. Furthermore, few professional opportunities existed for the city's growing community of theater actors, directors, writers and designers. Thus, Main Street Theater, the first of several new theater companies established during the 1970's, was founded to meet two needs: to offer Houston theatergoers a more varied and challenging selection of plays and musicals and to provide a venue for training, employment and exposure for our city's professional theater artists.
