For those wishing to see “All is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914,” please check your local PBS listings. The Theatre Latte Da production from the Twin Cities is scheduled to be streamed on pbs.org beginning December 15th.
Somewhat disappointing for those of us close to Kansas City and the National World War I Museum and Memorial, local PBS stations have given us only one opportunity a piece to see this presentation, and not under the best scheduling. In Topeka it will air on December 22nd on KTWU-Enhance (11.3) at 11 p.m. CT. On Kansas City PBS-2 it will air on December 27th at 2:00 p.m. CT.
I’ve heard that in the New York City Metro / Northern New Jersey viewers will have plenty of opportunities to see “All is Calm.” They’re lucky. Theatre Latte Da has toured this show in the past, and has proved to be popular, and a new tradition in the Twin Cities this time a year, just as the annual showing of “Joyeux Noel” has been at the National World War I Museum and Memorial.
