|Most nativity plays or musicals are rather straight forward and humorless--not so Bethlehem's Big Night. Noted humorist Martha Bolton takes the age-old Christmas story and introduces some genuine characters like the two innkeepers' wives who vie for customers with their "vacancy" and "no vacancy" signs. Music by Bill Wolaver matches Martha's lyrics to a tee. The tee can stand for "Townspeople" who make up a chorus and have speaking lines.|
