Phoenix Theatre presents
Twist of the Magi
by Debra Rich Gettleman

December 1 thru 23
Friday and Saturday 8:00pm, Sunday 2:00pm

Twist of the Magi starts with O’Henry’s classic short story, “Gift of the Magi”.

Then it sets it in an authentic 1940’s live, on-air radio broadcast, and adds a slew of disgruntled actors, a frantic sound effect technician, a whacky female trio, a delinquent (and inebriated) Shakespearean prima donna, a jealous Italian femme fatale and a host of other broadcasting eccentrics.

This classic holiday tale unfolds through a series of comic twists and turns as O’Henry’s heroine trades her beautiful hair to buy a Christmas present for her young husband. Tortured by seller’s remorse, she befriends an unlikely Yiddish Yenta and the two women embark on a series of zany adventures in an attempt to recover her lost locks.

“If you’ve grown tired of dancing sugarplums and shoeless match girls, this entertaining bit of holiday fare for the whole family is cathartic, goofy fun in a season that sometimes chokes on its own sentiment.” - The Arizona Republic

Cast: Alssa Cattabriga, James Lynch, Nicola Amos, Sarah McGrath, Denise Wichsier, Scott, Hibbert, Steve Heiret, Susan Connors, Melanie Calderwood

Phoenix Theatre is located in Firdale Village 9673 Firdale Ave, Edmonds 98020.
