National Tour of All Is Calm Celebrates Humanity’s Best Side during Its Worst Times at Soka Performing Arts Center

All Is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914 is a dramatic retelling of an astounding moment in history when Allied and German soldiers laid down their arms to celebrate Christmas together, sharing food and drink, playing soccer, singing carols, and burying each other’s dead. Created by Peter Rothstein of Theater Latté Da, musical arrangements by Erick Lichte and Timothy C. Takach, produced in collaboration with Hennepin Theatre Trust. “The singing is absolutely top-notch, and the spoken parts – including words written both by ‘ordinary’ and well-known soldiers are equally eloquent and moving” (Classics Today).

Additional creative team includes Costume Designer Trevor Bowen and Lighting Designer Marcus Dillard. The cast for this national tour includes Sasha Andreev, Sean Nugent, Benjamin Dutcher, Ben Johnson, Riley McNutt, Rodolfo Nieot, James Ramlet, Andrew Wilkowske, and Evan Tyler Wilson.
