About the show:
The Christmas Revels: In Celebration of the Winter Solstice(On Sale October 20)
Directed by Patrick Swanson with music direction by George Emlen, this year’s holiday celebration takes place in the present day atThe George and Dragon, a 17th– century English pub famous for its annual Christmas party and jazz sessions which were compromised last year, like all celebrations. As they attempt to restart the tradition, a fussy Elizabethan bureaucrat and his entourage suddenly appear, and old and new ways meet, tying the past to the present through a magical blend of music, dance, and story. Performances are set to runDecember 17-29, 2021.
