Two of the hottest stars of musical theater have crafted a brilliant new adaptation of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. Adapted by Steve Wargo, one of the writers of the underground sensation Triassic Parq, The Musical, with musical arrangements by Dianne Adams McDowell, a Tony-nominee and vocal arranger for the highly anticipated A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder, this version of Dickens' classic tale features ensemble storytelling and a score of traditional Victorian carols and hymns. Kevin B. McGlynn, veteran of national and international tours of Forbidden Broadway, Kiss Me Kate and The Captain's Daughter, plays Ebenezer Scrooge in this remarkable production by the Anthem Theatre Company.

My boyfriend and I saw this on a Thursday night. We both thought it was a beautifully done show. The first story (based on little red riding hood) started out a little slower but we were soon swept up in the tale. Second story was more humorous and darker, I absolutely loved it. Minimalist sets in the smaller of spaces, the actors did a tremendous job of managing their cast of characters and telling the story through their words and movement. I highly recommend!
Quotes & Highlights
- "Angela Carter’s radio-play takes on “Sleeping Beauty” and “Little Red Riding Hood,” are a little different from the versions you grew up with. Cannibalism, vampires, werewolves, and blood — lots of blood — figure prominently."--Boston Globe
- "Many artists have done their own personal take on fairy tales like "Little Red Riding Hood" and "Sleeping Beauty," but few of them really elevate the genre. Carter’s radio plays "The Company of Wolves" and "Vampirella" do."--EDGE Boston
- "Hairy Tales, in no uncertain terms, awed me with its artistry and execution."--My Entertainment World
- "Matthew Wood evokes the poetry and the pulse of two very different Carter gems in ’adults-only’ one- act dramatizations of "The Company of Wolves" and "Vampirella (Lady of the House of Love)" ... "Vampirella" is a world-class haunt."--My South End
