Collins LLC Proudly Presents on Saturday, December 4 at 7:00 PM at The Hoosier Den in Foster-Gresham: Twist of the Magi, directed by Kyle Kristoff and Levi Gettleman, written by Debra Richand.
Admission is Free! No Tickets Required!
Seating begins at 6:30 PM
Twist of the Magi is based on O’Henry’s classic short story, "Gift of the Magi." This updated version is set in an authentic 1940s radio station as a live, on-air broadcast, adding a slew of disgruntled actors, their reticent stage manager, a frantic sound effects technician, a whacky musical trio, a delinquent Shakespearean prima donna; a jealous Italian femme fatale and a host of other broadcasting eccentrics. This classic tale of holiday love and generosity unfolds through a series of comic twists and turns as O’Henry’s heroine, Della, trades her beautiful hair to buy a Christmas gift for her devoted husband. Tortured by seller’s remorse, Della befriends an unlikely Yiddish Yenta, and the two women embark on a series of zany adventures to attempt to recover the lost locks.
