Sleepy, A bit saccharine & hokey (lots of mugging), A mix of holiday tunes, 75 minutes no intermish, Not a pure thomas event

See it if Need a rather anemic dose of holiday cheer. Want to hear a wide variety of holiday tunes sung with piano accompaniment.

Don't see it if Are a Dylan Thomas purist -- his words are chopped and diced here. Want a stirring, heartfelt holiday boost. Read more

Charming, Great singing, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if Nostalgia with a capital N-- yearning for a taste of another time, with family at the core, and nothing digital. Mesmerizing Noel will suit.

Don't see it if A concert interspersed with Dylan Thomas' poem. Lovely voices, songs and transportation to another time and place.

Delightful, Slow, Great singing

See it if You want to be put into the Christmas spirit by lovely singing and a charming tale of Christmas long ago and far away.

Don't see it if You want a staged musical or you have no patience for slow-moving and slight. But I found it charming.

It’s highly polished, beautifully staged (by Ms. Moore), tastefully designed, excellently sung, and musically lovely, but, for someone like me, who missed its earlier iterations, it comes off more as a Christmas chorale of over two dozen traditional and modern tunes (six with music and lyrics by the gifted Ms. Moore), tied together by a loosely integrated, less than faithful rendering of Thomas’s classic about Christmases past.
