Play Notes

× From the bucolic paradise of her Connecticut farm, famed Smart Housekeeping columnist Liz Lane dishes out advice on marriage, cooking, and homemaking to eager housewives across the country. There are just a few small details of which her readers aren’t aware: Liz actually lives in a tiny New York City apartment, she has never been married, and she can’t cook. When a beloved war hero (and fan of Liz’s column) is invited by Liz’s publisher to Christmas on the nonexistent farm, a musical comedy of errors ensues!

With lyrics by Jonathan Larson Award recipient Amanda Yesnowitz, music by Grammy Award winner Jason Howland (composer of Paradise Square and Little Women—not to mention a PTC alum as Musical Supervisor/Orchestrator on the world premiere of Shucked), and a book by Emmy Award winner Patrick Pacheco and celebrated entertainment journalist Erik Forrest Jackson, this new musical adaptation of the classic 1945 Warner Brothers film had its debut during the 2022 holiday season at Goodspeed Musicals in Connecticut (naturally). PTC audiences will be among the first in the nation to experience the still-in-development musical that is destined to become a magical holiday tradition!
