With GayCo Productions’ new best-of holiday revue Re: Gifted, only its very best holiday scenes of Christmases past have been selected and wrapped with tender love and candy canes.

Re: Gifted features several new scenes sprinkled together with the funniest and most flamboyantly festive scenes from GayCo’s three smash holiday revues: Do You Fear What I Fear?, Scream if You Love Christmas, and LIT!
From out-of-towners experiencing the Walnut Room for the first time and demented Sugar Plum Fairies to the true meaning of a White Christmas and friends toasting to what they really think about each other, Re: Gifted promises to be one holiday gift you won’t want to return.
