A Civil War Christmas

Center Stage is reporting that its holiday production of A Civil War Christmas has broken the theater’s single ticket daily gross record and has become one of the best-selling shows in the company’s 50-year history.

“We have been blown away by the magical show that Paula Vogel, Rebecca Taichman, and Liz Lerman have brought to us,” says Artistic Director Kwame Kwei-Armah. “It is thrilling to see our audiences embrace this production and the creative approach with which the team brought it to life.”

Limited tickets remain for the Pulitzer Prize winning play, which the Washington Post gave raves. To keep up with the demand, the theater is adding a performance on Sunday, December 22, at 7:30.

A Civil War Christmas weaves together the stories of more than two-dozen characters—spanning race, religion, and class—on Christmas Eve in 1864. All along the Potomac, from the White House to the front lines, figures both historical and fictional find their lives strangely and poetically intertwined. Infused with traditional holiday carols and period folk songs, A Civil War Christmas celebrates the beauty of shared humanity at a turning point in our nation’s history.
