A surprisingly unsatisfying production from A Noise Within. Too many stage tricks, perhaps. Maybe it would help to simplify it. Everyone seemed distracted.

Seats were great. The production, however, left me cold. Except for the ending, which of course elicits tears, the performance just seemed too silly to engage me.

A very traditional presentation without the extra creative spark that would make it unique and memorable. If you have never seen it performed you will like it. If you... continued

It is a wonderful presentation of the Dickens classic, very authentically done, with beautiful narration interspersed with visually stunning scenes and costumes. It's... continued

The actors try really, really hard, but this production of A Christmas Carol falls completely flat. Beginning with the narrator, who instead of giving us Dickens's... continued

Excellent production as always. Pet peeves -- 'Happy Holidays' instead of 'Merry Christmas' at the end, poor blocking and therefore visibility for GoldStar ticket buyers (especially Marley door-knocker effect),

The venue is very intimate, holding only about 650 people. There isn't a bad seat in the house! The cast actually walks on ramps that extend out into the audience. Very cool! The acting was excellent as well.

A Noise Within has just given South Coast Rep a rival for the Christmas Carol story.
