Two Classic Tales of Christmas in America

Love Creek invites you to join them in celebrating Christmas American-style and our gift to you are two plays.  

The first, Where the Snowflakes Bloom is by Love Creek founder Le Wilhelm.  This is only one of Le's many Holiday plays, but always especially poingant and moving.  On a very cold Christmas Eve the nightwatchman at a New York office building must make a choice between helping two homeless women stay warm, or losing his job.

Also

We are very proud to present The Long Christmas Dinner by Thornton Wilder.  Time moves by in blinks of the eyes for the Bayard family as Christmas dinners come and go and come and go for 90 years.

Get ready to PIVOT to St Luke’s Theatre!
