The time is 1963 in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Caroline Thibodeaux, an African-American mother of three works for a Southern Jewish family. She and their eight-year old son Noah, find themselves in the middle of a family conflict during the Christmas and Chanukah holidays. Combining gospel and the sounds of Motown with operatic stylings, this sparkling gem of a musical illuminates the changing times of the Civil Rights era while examining the social and family issues with which our diverse culture still struggles with today. $38.
