WINTER:

THE FIRST NOEL

SYNOPSIS

This Harlem-based holiday musical features music that crosses genresfrom pop to jazz to gospel to tell a universal story of love and belonging. This presentation follows three generations of a Harlem family affected by the tragic loss of a loved one. Time is slow to heal this family’s wounds until an unexpected visit from Grandma reveals some long-absent Christmas joy. This story is about how a community is healed, one family at a time, as everyday people do extraordinary things to help one another receive the gift of love during the holiday season.
