Well, I’ll wet your appetite, but you have to see it to bathe in the layers of taste proffered by director Rebecca Taichman. This is a musical using the star points of American history in a Christmas setting. The close relationship of Mary Todd Lincoln to her black seamstress Elizabeth Keckley. They both suffering deaths to their sons, Lincoln freeing the slaves on a silent night. (artistic liberty).

It is 1864, but the script has jabs to our current “band” of legislators, and Lincoln’s involvement with Christmas. Did he put his life on the line to retrieve a Christmas gift for Mary Todd his beloved?

In the meantime there are those fleeing the South, because it was heard ”things are better in the North”. A mother and her daughter head out. Will they make it?

This weaving of actors, and finite musical timing fell into the lap of Victor Simonson. And he came through masterfully. His credits include the WIZ and COLOR PURPLE.

Don”t miss this joy, it will take your endorphins way up, as though you devoured a box of chocolates while drinking red wine. What year? Your option.
