*STREET CAR CONSTRUCTION: Theatrical Outfit is so excited about the streetcar and the fabulous addition it will be to their neighborhood! In the meantime, the best route to the theatre avoiding streetcar construction is to take Marietta Street to Cone Street. Turn on Cone (there’s only one way to turn onto Cone, regardless of the direction from whence you came). We suggest parking at LAZ Parking deck on the corner of Cone and Luckie Streets via the Cone Street entrance. Parking vouchers to that LAZ deck are available for purchase at the box office for $4 cash. To avoid all issues… take MARTA! Peachtree Center Station is closest, Five Points is next closest.
ABOUT THE GIFTS OF THE MAGI
Back by popular demand, the heartwarming holiday musical filled with goodness, love and unselfish spirit, The Gifts of the Magi, returns to Theatrical Outfit this month! Based on two of O. Henry’s classic short stories, “The Gift of the Magi” and “The Cop and the Anthem”, playwright Mark St. Germain artfully weaves the two stories together, connected by a newsboy narrator, and wrapped in tuneful songs that will fill patrons hearts with the joy of the season.
It’s Christmas in New York City, 1904, and Della and Jim, a penniless newlywed couple, sacrifice their most precious possessions in order to buy each other a Christmas present. Meanwhile, City Him and City
Her are the hustle and bustle of cold New York as ne’er-do-well Soapy Smith, in search of a free meal and a cozy place to sleep for the holidays, attempts to get thrown in jail. News Vendor Willy guides the way through these classic stories with wise council and soaring melodies. A charming and transcendent musical that asks “Is the joy in the gift or in the giving?” The Gifts of the Magi will fill your heart with the true spirit of the season.
