In this tuneful holiday treat, Jay is ready to give up, while Leigh is ready to fight — when memories from Holidays Past remind them both — and  all of us — about what the spirit of the season is really about.

The production is directed by Ogunleye and Lucian Restivo, with musical direction by Meerovich and a band conducted by Kim Fox. The cast includes Emily Berry as Emily, Claire Bronchick as Jay, Amber Marie Martinez as the Doctor, and Eddie Webster as the Rabbi.

Additional production support has been provided by The John Knapp and Tim Gillham Fund for New Works.
