Short stories by O. Henry have never been so charmingly and hilariously staged. The Gift of the Magi, The Last Leaf, The Love Philtre of Ikey Schoenstein and The Marry Month of May are interlinked into a series of overlapping tales. Each is introduced with a mini overture of seasonal music. The finale, with all characters filling you in on what happened to them after their tales ended, is worth the price of admission. The characters are unforgettable, the dialogue is sparkling with wit, and the songs are sensational.
