About This Show

T. Schreiber Studio presents the US Premiere of Shauna Kanter’s The Gift. Based on a true story, the production is a haunting music theatre piece that travels back and forth between 1939 and 1965.

The play premiered in England at The Bristol Old Vic Theatre in 1995 under the title Legacy, and has since, been successfully performed in London, Germany, France and is now premiering in the US.
