CHRISTMAS IN AFGHANISTAN – based on the true story by Addison Blu | SO PROUDLY WE HAILED
Length: 13:06 

New Musicals Inc. is proud to launch the fourth episode of SO PROUDLY WE HAILED, the musical webseries honoring veterans in their own words.

“Christmas in Afghanistan” is based on the experience of veteran Addison Blu, about a soldier stationed in Afghanistan who accidentally buys an entire truckful of bread on Christmas Eve. The episode has book by Addison Blu, music by Michael Finke, and lyrics by Addison Blu and Michael Finke. Directed by Megan Rees, and featuring performer Tonoccus McClain.

For this webseries, New Musicals Inc. has paired veteran honorees with an artistic team comprised of a composer, lyricist, director, and dramaturg, and then helped to shape their story into a short musical retelling in a digital platform. This project is hosted by New Musicals Inc.

This activity is supported in part by generous grants from: the Helen and Jose Colton Foundation; the Peter Glenville Foundation; the Anonymous Fund (Marin County); and the California Arts Council, a state agency.
