A prequel to Charlotte Sweet, Ludlow Ladd is part Dickens, part Gilbert and Sullivan, part Fractured Fairy Tale. This family operetta evolves through mock-Christmas carols and centers on Ludlow Ladd, a poor young orphan in Victorian Liverpool. It’s Christmas night and his birthday, and Ludlow wanders the streets searching for a home. The eccentric Grimbles take him to his house, already crammed with animals, plants, and Prudence, the Grimbles’ bratty daughter. After annoying the Grimbles, Ludlow is left alone with their Christmas tree. He is suddenly whisked to the Land of Yuletide Cheer where dreams can come true—resulting in a holiday miracle.
