Based on two Damon Runyon stories, TACT's world premiere comedy centers around three New York guys who find themselves on Christmas Eve 1932 in Good Time Charley’s speakeasy on West 46th Street. More…
As the bootleg liquor flows, the guys agree to band together and take to the road to avoid all the hubbub of the holiday. Besides, notorious racketeer Heine Schmitz is after them, and they have to get out of town. Over one long life-changing night, they make some big decisions while inadvertently spreading good cheer around and about to one and all.
