This magically musical production warms the hearts of family audiences as they reflect on the true meaning and spirit of the holidays.
A Season of Miracles is a multi-cultural collection of tales that celebrate Christmas, Kwanzaa and Chanukah. Stories within this delightful musical include O. Henry’s “The Gift of the Magi”; an original scene in Nigeria entitled “The Kwanzaa Kite”; a story based on the folklore of Chelm called “The Chanukah Miracle” and E.T.A. Hoffmann’s The Nutcracker.
“As for miracles?” noted Ruth Fost, Pushcart co-founder and the production’s playwright, “They are within us all and at the heart of each story. Miracles are the gifts of love, kindness, caring and sharing.”
Pushcart Players artistic director Paul Whelihan directed the production, based on original staging and choreography by Fost and Susie Paplow. A Season of Miracles cast features Melanie Beck, Melissa Cox, JD Lynch and Anthony M. Stokes. Larry Hochman musically arranges A Season of Miracles.
