A CIVIL WAR CHRISTMAS: An American Musical Celebration, by Pulitzer Prize-winner Paula Vogel, with music by Daryl Waters.

Ms. Vogel sets her play on the bitterly cold Christmas Eve of 1864, in Washington, D.C. In the White House, President and Mrs. Lincoln plan their gift-giving, while on the banks of the frozen Potomac a young rebel soldier is captured by a Union blacksmith; nearby John Wilkes Booth hatches a plot with conspirators; and an enslaved woman and her daughter become separated on their journey to freedom. Featuring hymns and carols of the period, Ms. Vogel’s A Civil War Christmas masterfully interweaves stories of lives from both sides of the Civil War, sharing messages of compassion, good will and wishes for peace.
