With the holiday season hustle and bustle upon us, take a moment to slow it down a bit. Treat yourself to a night at The Arkansas Repertory Theatre. The Rep presents The Gift of the Magi, a timeless classic of love and giving. O. Henry’s holiday tale of a financially strapped couple struggling to gift each other the perfect present is beautifully played on The Rep’s stage. It serves as a poignant reminder that very often the best things come from within.
“This beloved and ageless Christmas story has been copied, adapted, and parodied countless times since it first appeared in print in 1905," said John Miller-Stephany, the Rep's Artistic Director. "Although there are a number of stage versions available for licensing, my colleagues and I are eager to create a brand new musical specifically for The Rep’s loyal holiday audience.”
