- "This show is very easy to produce. You can go with simple area staging or a more complex set-whichever suits your needs. Costumes are important especially when going with a simpler set."
- Review by Norma Jean Acker, Thornapple Players, Hastings, Mich.
- "The Gift of the Magi was a wonderful adaptation of the O. Henry story. There were enough characters in the cast for an interesting rendition, yet the entire scope was still small enough for the intimate performances we desired."
- Review by Tammy Franklin, Rising Curtain Theatre and Dance, Arvada, Colo.
Hints, Tips, and Tricks
- "Do not allow the narrator to remain detached from the action. The director of this one act chose to integrate the narrator into the story "a la Our Town." It worked very well. P.S. It was a staging choiceÑno lines were altered."
- Tip by Cindy Nederhoff, Dordt College, Sioux Center, Iowa
