A choral celebration of the greatest story ever told.
The first Christmas comes alive in this inspiring new show in the open-air Il Teatro di San Marco Theatre.
I’ve said this to others and I’ll say it here:Last night when I saw Unto Us, the crowd roared with applause when the Gloria-inspired arrangement of Away in a Manger started to play. The performance that I saw seemed to be very well received and it even got a standing ovation from about 80% of the audience, but Away in a Manger by far got the biggest reaction. It’s not the biggest production they’ve put together, but it has elements of Gloria, Believe, and even a little bit of Rejoice.
While it’s probably not my favorite show this year, I think it’s the best show in there since Miracles and it’s a fun way to relax with or without a meal.
I personally don’t think that’s fair, but that’s my opinion. I say that, though, because Gloria featured live music, but also a stage that was much more flexible in terms of what can be done (moving floors, projection screens that can be rolled, etc), whereas Unto Us is more acapella (not really, but I mean that it’s quieter), but also done in more simple way. The idea behind both is the same, but the way they were executed are opposite. They both are themed around the Nativity, but Gloria was more of a reenactment of it, Unto Us is more of a retelling of it.I thought the most successful songs were "Rejoice' and 'Away in a Manger' which were straight-up copies of arrangements from two previous shows. Otherwise, I thought the show was sort of boring, but I am probably comparing it to Gloria, so I'm not sure if that is fair or not.
I’ve been hearing a rumor that all shows are being cancelled this weekend. Idk if it’s true, but if it is, just a few people gonna be phased off.This was cancelled on Wed 12/29. There was rain predicted but it didn’t come until around 8:30
But it’s again cancelled on Fri 12/31 with no rain predicted.
Not true Celtic Fyre, Unto to Us, and Scrooge No More are canceled. From what I have heard all are Covid related. Haustop and Twas are still going on as usual. I believe several of the village preforms have temporary moved into the theaters to preform or at least that was what happened yesterday.I’ve been hearing a rumor that all shows are being cancelled this weekend.
