A Civil War Christmas

Teresa Castracane
Performance Dates

It’s 1864 and Washington, D.C. is settling down to the coldest Christmas Eve in years. “History lessons and holiday warmth sit cozily alongside each other” (The New York Times) in this pageant of carols by Paula Vogel, the Pulitzer Prize-winning writer of Indecent. Stories of many intertwining lives– spanning from the battlegrounds of Northern Virginia to the halls of the White House– demonstrate that the gladness of one's heart is the best gift of all. This “rich and moving play with music” (Variety) is a treat the whole family will enjoy.
