The conspicuous absence of the monumental “Christmas Truce” from history textbooks inspired Peter Rothstein to create the radio musical drama All Is Calm in, which brings to life the voices of WWI soldiers using first-hand accounts, drawing on “letters, journals, official war documents, poetry, gravestone inscriptions — even an old radio broadcast.”
This month, the Public Theater presents its fourth consecutive presentation of All is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914 at UTSA’s downtown Buena Vista Theatre, running concurrently with the lighter fare on deck at its theater off Ashby — Elf the Musical.
$15-$30, 7:30 p.m. Thursdays-Saturdays, 2 p.m. Sundays through December 22, UTSA Buena Vista Theatre, 501 W. César E. Chávez Blvd., (210) 733-7258, thepublicsa.org.
