A World Premiere musical from acclaimed playwright and Buffalo native, Tom Dudzick, that features an all-new holiday story ABOUT Buffalo’s favorite family, the Pazinskis, from his OVER THE TAVERN series.  Christmas 1959 is not very merry for the Pazinskis.  Dad is going through a mid-life depression and refuses to buy a Christmas tree. Sister Clarissa is threatening to expel 12-year-old Rudy for performing a blasphemous one-man Nativity Scene where he plays all the characters as Hollywood celebrities and everyone is worried that this may be their last Christmas together as a whole family. It’s a brand new chapter in this WNY tradition!
