"Hilarious Holiday Fare" Philadelphia Inquirer
"The Carols is a Nostalgic Look at Christmas Past" Broadway World 

This new original comedy brings us an oddball friendship between a trio of singing sisters, an out-of-work Catskills comic, a limping piano player, and their grumpy Scrooge-like landlady. The Carols is a heartfelt and hopeful musical that looks at making something right with all the wrong people.
