About this show

The Gift is a perfect show for the family. It's the week before Christmas, 1905. Newlyweds Jim and Deila can hardly wait to spend their first Christmas together. But because money's tight this year, they promise each other that they will not exchange presents. Meanwhile, two Irish immigrants, Danny Tobin and John Malone begin their boisterous search for Tobin's long-lost ladylove, Katie Mahorner, by following the mysterious clues revealed in Tobin's palm by a Coney Island fortune-teller. But will this be the perfect Christmas? This heartwarming world premiere musical, based on the unforgettable stories of O. Henry, celebrates the meaning of love and the spirit of Christmas in a nostalgic look at an American Christmas 100 years ago. There are additional matinees on Thursday, Dec 18, Wednesday, Dec 24 and Friday, Dec 26 at 2pm
