Synopsis: Nearly 25 years ago, Michael McLean created a Christmas performance that became an instant classic. It starts simply. Michael was seated at his piano when he wondered: “What if I met the innkeeper who tuned away Joseph and Mary?’ And from that one thought, a new Christmas tradition was born – a tradition that would touch the hearts of countless people through original music and the stories of “forgotten” characters of the Nativity story.
The Forgotten Carols shares the warmth of the Christmas spirit through a stage performance. The show tells the story of a nurse whose empty life is changed when a new patient recounts the story of Christ’s birth as told by little known characters in the nativity story. The accounts from the Innkeeper, the shepherd and others help the nurse discover what the world has forgotten about Christmas, and open her heart to the joy of this special season.
Michael McLean’s “The Forgotten Carols” has been enjoyed by sold-out audiences nationwide.
