Hell in a Handbag Productions is pleased to continue its 20th anniversary season with the return of one of its most popular holiday musicals: Christmas Dearest.Joan Crawford (David Cerda) returns in Handbag’s very own version of A Christmas Carol. It’s 1953 and Joan is desperate to reignite her career with the new film, Oh, Mary!, a big splashy musical adaption of the life of the Virgin Mary. Everything has to be perfect, but the stress of surviving in Hollywood has turned Joan into a tyrant! Even Carol Ann (Ed Jones), Joan’s faithful personal assistant is at her wits’ end. What Joan needs is a miracle, and that’s exactly what she gets when she’s visited by three ghosts who try to show Joan the error of her ways and the true meaning of the holidays.
