Combine the songs of “The Greatest Showman” with the setting of “Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium”, toss in a heaping helping of Christmas, and you’d be in the neighborhood. Fun and colorful and oh-so-family-friendly, the musical redemption story of a local toymaker whose apprentice stole all his ideas may be a half-hour too long, but if you can get your kids to sit still for it, you may just find a new holiday tradition.
