Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical [Review]


Last night, my dad and I slogged through rain and flooded streets to get my kids to see Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer: The Musical in Boston. We could have used a sleigh with some reindeer assistance because the traffic was awful and we ended up a few minutes late. Luckily, we zipped into the theater…

Growing up in New England, a “white Christmas” was always an ideal. Sure, it comes with travel headaches, but it’s just so magical. I think that magic is captured in Irving Berlin’s White Christmas.

This Is the Christmas that Never Ends…

I have a somewhat crazy family. I’ve got my mom’s side (Think Large, Irish, Catholic, and then Not-so-large, Russian). I’ve got my biological father’s side (ok, not really, but there are a couple of people I keep in touch with). I’ve got my stepfather-who-adopted-me-so-is-actually-my-father’s side. I’ve got my in-laws. And, possibly strangest of all, I’ve…
