"If Hollywood in the 1940's had adapted Charles Dicken's "Christmas Carol" to a Broadway setting, the result might have been "Times Square Angel." Author Charles Busch's Christmas opus offers the mix of camp comedy and Yuletide sentiment worthy of the best Hollywood dream machines." It's funny and full of wisecracks. Matthew Scott Lucas stars as Irish O'Flanagan. She's a red-headed headliner of the club Intime. A lifetime of hard knocks has left her bitter. (Inspired by Maureen O'Hara in "Miracle on 34th Street)An angel appears to her in the form of a sexy vaudeville magician (played by Michael Angelo and inspired by "It's a Wonderful Life.) Like Scrooge, Irish has a chance to begin again. Albert makes a deal with the Lord to save her life.
