Just before leaving the park, which we much enjoyed despite the odd chill of the “Miracles” show, we took in the day’s final performance of “Gloria!” in the Ireland sector.

“Gloria!” is the real deal, telling the tale of the Christ child’s birth through song and pantomime. As long as I’m playing theater critic, I’ll venture that the show is initially a bit ponderous, but gets better and better, and — spoiler alert — ends with a powerful gospel number that rocks the theater with joy.

Of course, anywhere you go amid the clatter of modern life, you can listen for the still, small voice of the One who came to save us — and rejoice.
