The Gifts of the Magi

Music by Randy Courts, Lyrics by Mark St. Germain & Randy Courts

It is Christmas in New York, but for two young lovers, Jim and Della, the prospects are bleak, as both are out of work and penniless. But as those familiar with the famous O. Henry story are aware, their dilemma is solved when both part with their most precious possessions (she her beautiful long hair, he his heirloom pocket watch) in order to buy presents for each other thereby creating, at least for a magical moment, an aura of warmth and giving in the cold, impersonal winter city. In addition to their story there are glimpses of various city folk (played by the same two performers) going about their holiday business, and the hilarious plight of a cheerful bum named Soapy, who wants only to get arrested so he can spend the night in a cozy cell, all gracefully enhanced by tuneful songs and neatly tied together by a newsboy-narrator, Willy, who adds his own melodious contribution and informative observations to the delightful proceedings.

“…slick family entertainment…the show ticks along like clockwork…” —NY Times.

“…crisp and entertaining…” —NY Daily News.

“…a bright and beguiling musical…calculated to bring a laugh to the throat and a misty tear to the eye of theatregoers, young or old.” —NY Tribune.

About Sabrina Biehl

Born a 10th generation Oregonian, (5 generations on each side) I have an enthusiasm for learning and teaching new things. After a ten year mini career in the dental field I moved on to research and embraced the social web. Though the internet is far too large for any one person to claim to be an expert, I can hold my own with the latest trends.

I enjoy researching and writing blogs. As the "Internet Program Director" have embraced the routine schedules because updating unique content is where all the fun is at! Well, actually other people appreciating the content is even more rewarding and it is my job to help content get noticed. I truly am suited to the fast pace of internet trends, with the intense curiosity to understand the statistics.

I have a wide variety of interests but most relate to embracing technology as a part of everyday life. Social networks are a tool and they don't hold me back from enjoying the real world. As a mother of three boys I gather and store information like a squirrel, grabbing what I can in the moments I have to myself and storing it for later. There is always something entertaining, educational or inspirational to appreciate on the internet that I enjoy sharing with friends and family.

The world is a giant source of puzzle pieces and I am a sorter, creator and distributor of the big picture. Certainly I am an expert on where and how to use our community site, so don't hesitate to throw interesting things my way. Everyone is a part of the conversation!
