General Notes

Although not a musical, music figures largely in the plot. The plot has many twists and turns, interconnections, and just-missed encounters which mostly resolve in the end. Most of the characters ultimately achieve happiness in their love pursuits.


A Romantic Comedy/Drama set at Christmastime, about the love lives of numerous people which all intertwine. The action centers on London but ranges to Provence and the U.S. Lighthearted comedy is a central feature.


Wonderful experiences of love are found in many forms and places.

Emotional Sum or Sense-of-life

Romantic love, family love, filial love, and the love of friendship are of central importance to human existence, and are possible to achieve.
