The Gringo Who Stole Christmas

Friday, December 12, 2014 to Sunday, December 21, 2014

The Gringo Who Stole Christmas is an Hispanic take on the classic Dickens tale A Christmas Carol. Kevin, aka, Diego, has determined that the only way for immigrants to “make it” in America is to completely assimilate, beginning by losing their accents. In the process, though, he has lost more than just his accent. Three fantasmas visit Kevin and show him the value of embracing who he really is, appreciating his heritage and living in the now.

In this delightful and funny tale, local author David Kalish, whose newly released novel The Opposite of Everything has been met with enthusiastic reviews, and Grammy-nominated musician Alex Torres along with his renowned Latin Orchestra team up to provide get-up-out-of-your-seat-and-dance Latin music and clever, memorable characters for a unique holiday experience.

The Gringo Who Stole Christmas, book by David Kalish, music by Alex Torres, directed by Matthew T. Teichner, director of the award-winning productions from  Our Own Productions at The Egg in Albany.
