Single mother, Doris Walker, doesn’t want her six-year-old daughter Susan’s head filled with romantic notions. Their neighbor, Fred Gailey, tries to woo Doris by charming Susan and taking her to see Santa Claus at Macy’s, where Doris works. Doris is not impressed, but when it turns out Macy’s santa may, in fact, be the real Kris Kringle, a wave of love spreads across New York City that melts even the most cynical hearts. Filled with humor, spectacle and such beloved songs such as, “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas” and”Pinecones and Holly berries”. This joyous, heartwarming musical is pure entertainment.
