Produced in cooperation with Music Theatre International


The creative genius behind The Music Man lends his musical talent to an American classic. No one thinks anything of the kindly bearded gentleman who becomes a last-minute replacement for Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade Santa Claus. But when that same gentleman begins to speak foreign languages to children, to send Macy’s shoppers to Gimbels, and to tell people he truly is Santa Claus, no one’s life is ever the same! A wonderful testament to the power of imagination, this tuneful family show features such toe-tapping numbers as “Pine Cones and Holly Berries/It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas,” and “That Man Over There Is Santa Claus.”
