To create his first original stage musical since Promises, Promises (recently revived on Broadway), Bacharach has joined forces with Spring Awakening‘s Steven Sater to re-imagine the classic O. Henry Christmas tale The Gift of the Magi for today’s audiences. On Christmas Eve, estranged lovers Molly and Ben are haunted by the memory of happier times, and like the unforgettable melody of a favorite song, their memories conspire to bring them together again.
