It’s Christmastime in 1944. War is raging and, here at home, a group of neighbors gathers at the VFW to make the most of what they have.
This new original musical comedy, first staged in 2017, is back by popular demand and tells the story of an oddball friendship between a trio of singing sisters, an out-of-work Catskills comic, a limping piano player, and their grumpy Scrooge-like landlady. The Carols is a heartfelt, laugh-out-loud and hopeful musical that looks at making something right with all the wrong people.
You can catch this show at Carnegie Stage (free parking, lots of great restaurants, and super affordable tickets) Dec. 5 – 7, 12 – 14 @ 8:00 pm, Dec. 1 & 8 @ 3:00 pm.
I was very bummed that we missed this show in 2017 so I was thrilled to see it return this season. I like seeing festive seasonal performances, especially those that make me think (and feel.) Carnegie Stage and Off the wall Productions are incredibly queer competent and deserve your support.
