What the critics are saying:
"Woodruff spins a Dickensian saga, full of outlandish Londoners and narrative twists, both cruel and kind ... But beneath the dark, chilly gloom of The Christmas Doll ... beats a big, bright, beautiful heart ... Audiences will cherish this beautifully crafted "Doll."
  – The Charlotte Observer
"It's better than half the musicals I saw on Broadway last year — with production values at the same high level ... a damn good musical!"
  – Creative Loafing
"The children in the audience ate it up ... the music and dance, the story, the sets, and especially the ending ... that Charles Dickens or Nora Ephron would be proud to claim."
  – Arts A La Mode
"A visually spellbinding production!"
  – National Youth Theater
