Truman Capote’s A Christmas Memory is a family-embracing musical play based on the short story by the famous American writer. This celebration of the simple pleasures of life and the joy of giving offers a festive, emotional story that reminds us what Christmas, family and friendship are all about.​

Set in a small Southern town in the 1930s, A Christmas Memory is an evocative musical memoir that follows the comic adventures of two misfit cousins, with a book by Duane Poole, music by Larry Grossman, lyrics by Carol Hall and orchestrations by Steve Orich.

“We at Great Escape were privileged to stage the Michigan premiere of this wonderful musical play a few years ago, and we’re just as excited to bring it back again for the new Christmas season,” said Randy Lake, the company’s artistic director.
