Come early to enjoy the on-stage bar, featuring wine, beer and hard cider, and write down a favorite winter memory that might be used in Winter Song

A Christmas Memory

An autobiographical recollection of Truman Capote's rural Alabama boyhood, A Christmas Memory is a tiny gem of a holiday story, offering an unforgettable portrait of an odd but enduring friendship between two innocent souls — one young and one old — and their shared memories of beloved holiday rituals.

-paired with-

Winter Song
The brilliant singer Merideth Kaye Clark (Fiddler on the Roof and The Last Five Years at The Armory, Wicked national tour) and director Brandon Woolley are creating an original presentation of favorite songs that celebrate winter and all it represents: love, loss, family, solitude, renewal and friendship. 

“Winter is the most emotionally complicated season. The music that it inspires is rich. There are, of course, holiday songs. But we were more interested in the music that captures other winter feelings. Traveling home or hunkering down in the cold. The loneliness and isolation the darkness brings. The gatherings of families and communities.” - Merideth Kaye Clark
