We rode MARTA and it was very easy, very close and a short enjoyable walk of about two blocks from the Peachtree Center Station to the Balzer Theatre at Herren's.

We arrived early to have dinner before the performance. The Landmark Diner, just 1/2 block away on Luckie Street, is not fancy, but had a varied menu at reasonable prices. They have a full bar plus the food was delicious and service was fast and excellent.

Description

Written by Mark St. Germain; Music by Randy Courts

Directed by Heidi Cline McKerley; Music Direction by S. Renee Clark

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.
