STAGE TUBE: First Look at Porchlight's THE GIFTS OF THE MAGI

Porchlight adds a new holiday family event to the Christmas calendar with the Chicago premiere of The Gifts of the Magi, directed by Mark Lococo with lyrics by Mark St. Germain and Randy Courts, now playing through December 23. Drawn from two short stories by the immortal O. Henry, "The Gift of the Magi" and "The Cop and the Anthem," this heart-warming charmer transports the audience to Christmas in New York, 1905 where they not only meet the famEd Penniless lovers but also a metropolis of people going about their holiday business including "Soapy Smith," a cheerful bum hoping to be arrested so he can spend winter in a warm cell. The Gifts of the Magi is an evening perfect for the whole family celebrating the true meaning of the season.

BroadwayWorld has a first look at the production below.

Tickets are $39.  The regular run is Fridays at 8 p.m., Saturdays at 4 and 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m.  For more information, visit: Porchlightmusictheatre.org
