Storyline

TSO's THE GHOST OF CHRISTMAS EVE is a unique fantasy trip through the magic of Christmas. Narrated by award-winning actor Ossie Davis, the production takes us on a journey of a runaway little girl's decision to return to her family after she enters a rundown theater for shelter and encounters an old caretaker who guides her on her journey. This magical story - which features appearances from Atlantic recording artists Jewel and Michael Crawford - was filmed entirely on location at the newly refurbished and historic Loews Jersey Theatre in Jersey City, New Jersey, and includes performances of such tracks as "O Come All Ye Faithful," "Good King Joy," "Christmas Canon," "Music Box Blues," "Promises To Keep," and "This Christmas Day."

Excellent DVD
25 December 2008 | by (Spokane, WA, United States) – See all my reviews

As concert DVDs go, this one is pretty good and a must buy for fans of Christmas music. The story presented is touching and TSO is excellent in turning Christmas music into a format that is enjoyable for all.

I have seen TSO in concert every year since 2003 and sometimes twice during the season if the cities are close enough. The best one, by far, was New Years Eve 2007 (heading into 2008) in Birmingham AL as Tommy Shaw of Styx played the final three songs with TSO.

To try to put into words what is TSO show is like is not possible. The music, singers, band, stage show with lasers, explosions, lights, and just the entire stage presence is beyond belief. You actually feel a part of the show. I have been brought to tears many times.

I've seen the west version of TSO each time. The narration of Tony Gaynor is outstanding...he could narrate a phone book and you would feel touched. The band of Al Pitrelli (the maestro), Angus Clark, Anna Phoebe/Mark Wood/Alison Zlotow, John Lee Middleton/Chris Altenhoff, John O'Reilly, Jane Mangini, and Derek Wieland, are the best! The singers include Tommy Farese, the winter queen Kristin Gorman, "old city bar" Bart Shatto, Andrew Ross, Jeff Soto, Scout Xavier, and Erin Henry...fantastic.

The DVD gives you an insight to TSO's version of a Christmas show. But to see in person then you walk away in awe. I hope Paul O'Neill produces a live DVD one day...to relive the show over and over again.

Thank you TSO!
