Reviews & Press: 

The Blue Carbuncle with Sherlock Holmes & The Gift of the Magi

I sincerely hope theatregoers will find time to enjoy this delightful overflows with the true spirit of the season...cleverly adapted by Andrew Joffe and imaginatively staged by Kathleen Brant...complete with jubilant carolers and a street-corner violinist...with a talented 12-member ensemble in a prelude of eight contemporary holiday songs, arranged and directed by Jeffrey Buchsbaum.

The WorkShop Theater gives a cheerful alternative to bombast or treacle in these two charming adaptations...genuinely amusing and fine versions of holiday classics to enjoy and celebrate...all in all, these are captivating Christmas tales, comfortable and worthwhile to curl up with and well done by the Workshop Theater Company.
