Another Opening to Another Show!
Are you in Los Angeles? Come see the best frickin' version of A Christmas Carol you will ever see. Okay, so the best SERIOUS version of A Christmas Carol you will ever see. The funny ones can be pretty darn clever (I'm looking at you, Troubies).
But if you're looking for some heartwarming holiday fare, stray away from the commercial spectaculars that go directly against the message of this show. Head on over to GTC Burbank and find out what the real deal with this play is about.
I mean, we all know the story of A Christmas Carol. But have you ever read it? The original text - not the movie or the play. Dickens prose is stunningly gorgeous and that's what we do. We get the book out and we read it for you. The entire play is his original words performed by three actors (one of which is a Broadway veteran) with two long scarves. It's really cool. And it doesn't suck. I promise.
