Miracle on 34th Street

By Meredith Willson

Directed by Tina Lang

Kris Kringle takes on the cynics among us in this musical adaptation of the popular holiday favorite. In his inimitable style, Meredith Willson (THE MUSIC MAN, THE UNSINKABLE MOLLY BROWN), tells us the classic story of the year. A white-bearded gentleman claiming to be the real Santa Claus brings about a genuine MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET, spreading a wave of love throughout New York City, fostering camaraderie between Macy’s and Gimbel’s Department Stores, and convincing a divorced, cynical single mother, her somber daughter and the entire state of New York that Santa Claus is no myth.

Filled with humor, spectacle (the opening scene takes place at none other than Macy’s famous Thanksgiving Parade) and such beloved songs as “Pinecones and Hollyberries,” “It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas” and “My State, My Kansas,” this joyous, heart-warming musical is pure family entertainment, wholesome without being cloying. With its built-in audience base, MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET THE MUSICAL is the perfect holiday treat!
