CHRISTMAS LETTERS

Music by LAURA BERGQUIST and PAUL COZBY

Book and Lyrics by PAUL COZBY

FRESH, FUNNY FABULOUS! Have you ever written or received a Christmas letter tucked into a card, attached to an email or posted on Facebook? Did you ever feel secretly superior or infinitely inferior as you read the laundry list of annual accomplishments of your closest friends and distant relatives?  Does the holiday season ever leave you feeling besieged, befuddled, and bewildered?   Tied up in ribbons and wrapped up in bows?  Overwrought, overspent and over it?  Indecisively insane and insanely inadequate?  Then this hilarious new musical is for you.  It covers it all from the first card to arrive in the mail through Black Friday blues, funky family portraits,  unassembled toys, silly sibling rivalries and harried, gift hunting husbands.   But don’t worry, it all ends well….after all its Christmas!
