Holiday Shows Play Leading Role

It's a recurring theme this time of year: Ebenezer Scrooge pinches his pennies and the Sugar Plum Fairy dances for little Clara and the Prince.

"A Christmas Carol" and "The Nutcracker" are theatrical traditions, and in Boston they generate a disproportionate amount of overall annual revenue for Boston's stages.

To find out how vital such seasonal shows are to the theater scene now and throughout the rest of the year, WBUR's Delores Handy speaks with Catherine Peterson, Director of ArtsBoston.

This program aired on November 28, 2008. The audio for this program is not available.
