I loved this play. Everything that Theatrical Outfit puts on is worth a look, but I was not expecting so much from this one, since I knew the story and thought this would just be a nod to the holiday season.

“Theatrical Outfit is giving a gift to Atlanta this holiday season: a musical adaptation of O. Henry’s classic, The Gifts of the Magi. It is an outstanding present for which Atlanta should be grateful.” —ATL Insider
Written by Mark St. Germain; Music by Randy Courts

Jim and Della are out of work and penniless during Christmas in New York. To afford presents for each other, both secretly part with their most precious possessions. In O. Henry’s classic holiday story, the two lovers’ gesture of giving creates a warm and intimate Christmas in the cold, unfriendly city. Set to the music of Randy Courts, this charming and transcendent musical will kindle the holiday spirit in the heart of Atlanta.
