This very merry new holiday musical is based on the true story of A.C. Gilbert, inventor of the Erector Set. Set in 1917, when America was embroiled in the first World War, this “New Old-Fashioned” crowd-pleaser focuses on Gilbert’s battle with the U.S. government as it attempts to ban toy sales during the holiday season. The toe-tapping melodies of the musical numbers accurately and charmingly echo the World War I era, and dancing factory workers, singing soldiers, chorus lines of happy kids, and know-it-all politicians make Mr. Gilbert’s story sting!
