Pulitzer Prize winner Paula Vogel’s 2012 musical A Civil War Christmas weaves together a range of different stories in 1864 Washington DC on the coldest Christmas Eve in recent memory. President and Mrs. Lincoln, John Wilkes Booth, Ely Parker, Mary Surratt, and Clara Barton join a cast of over fifty characters to craft a tale of holidays, home, and heart. Told through a mixture of dialogue and traditional Christmas and Civil War music, A Civil War Christmas speaks to our shared humanity and the importance of community.
A Civil War Christmas: An American Musical Celebration is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service Inc., New York.
