On that legendary “Snowy Christmas Day” songs are sung, cakes are gobbled up, ghost stories are
whispered, and wild Indians roam the City Park! While the uncles, stuffed with pudding, nap and bellow on the parlor couch. . .
A cavalcade of imagery and sensation … The descriptions of treats and toys are evocative, the carols appealingly sung, the cast charming. This sweet show conjures plenty of good will toward men.” – The New York Times
“an atmosphere fit for a picture print by Currier and Ives… Just let it warm you inside like a cup of hot cocoa and take in the spirit of the holidays.” –TheaterMania
“charmingly presents the Christmas we all wish we could have experienced at least once in our lives… One of the most striking things about A Child’s Christmas in Wales is that no matter how many times we may see it, we can always find something different in its telling.” -The Epoch Times
“The holiday punchbowl is sweetly spicy at The Irish Repertory Theatre’s nostalgic holiday show… Moore looks for the best in Christmas, and combines it beautifully with Thomas’ Christmas fairytale, leaving the audience feeling as thought they’re tucked inside a cozy, musical snowglobe.” — Associated Press
“As good as a stiped & colored peppermint stick. The ensemble’s enjoyment of what they’re doing is not one engaging, but their genuine enthusiasm becomes infectious.” — Curtain Up
“Irish Rep’s production of A Child’s Christmas in Wales brings home the whole point of the Christmas tradition!” — New York Irish Arts
