The Gift of the Magi - 2005 - Off-Broadway

The Gift of the Magi: the Musical is an enduring story of love and sacrifice in the midst of the Christmas season in 1918 New York City. The world is at war. Times are difficult for many Americans. In this closely-knit community, everyone works hard to get what little they have. For Jim and Della, it's their first Christmas together as a married couple. What each wishes for most of all is to give "the perfect gift" to his/her beloved. Through their struggles to obtain these elusive gifts, Jim and Della let Christmas remind them what truly is most important.
