Just for the record: NEW show this year is “Yes, Virginia, The Musical”... Whoopi narrates (as a character: The Librarian) the story of Virginia O Hanlon who inspired the famous letter.... The commenter listed info about shows of the past 3 years (Miracle on 34th St) and a youtube of THAT older show...
