The comedy team of Gould & Stearns are bringing an original play for children to the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark for one performance only on Sunday, Dec. 14. The play with music, Simple Gifts, takes place during a blizzard, where two unlikely snowed-in roommates (think Planes, Trains & Automobiles) discuss their families' plans for the holidays-- and in the course of their musings hit upon the true meaning of Christmas and Chanukah.
Peter Gould and Steven Stearns have worked as a team since the mid-'70s and are known for their unique blend of physical comedy, song and social commentary.
Simple Gifts is being performed Dec. 14 at 2 PM at NJPAC's Victoria Theatre, One Center St. For tickets, call 1-888-466-5722.
