No “Civil War Christmas” In D.C. This Year

Washington, D.C.’s Arena Stage has pulled the second of two new musicals from its upcoming season. “The company said yesterday it has been forced to postpone ‘A Civil War Christmas,’ an ambitious piece by Pulitzer Prize winner Paula Vogel that was to have been the company’s major holiday offering.” Earlier, it delayed “The Women of Brewster Place,” based on the Gloria Naylor novel.
