It’s the First Day of Rehearsal for Alice Ripley and Irish Rep’s A Christmas Memory

The cast of the new off-Broadway musical A Christmas Memory met the press on October 21. The Irish Repertory Theatre production at the DR2 Theatre is scheduled to run from November 25-January 4 under the direction of Charlotte Moore.

Inspired by the largely autobiographical short story by Truman Capote, the musical features a score by Larry Grossman and Carol Hall, and a book by Duane Poole. Set in 1930s Alabama, the show looks at the celebration of Christmas in the American South from the perspective of a young boy and his eccentric family.
