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.

The writing and the acting in the first act were excellent. Compelling and clever. The problems were in the second act, which is actually At The Zoo, an Albee one-acter combined with the first part to make a longer evening in the theater. The difficulty was that the lead in this part --- who is also the founder of the company--- decided to move to the stage from behind the scenes. He was really shaky, literally. He dropped lines, was mechanical in delivery, and dragged the production down. I applaud his vision and determination in starting the company, but unfortunately not his performance.
America's greatest living playwright, Tony and Pulitzer Prize winner Edward Albee (Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?), creates a new classic by revisiting an old masterpiece. Using his breakthrough 1958 one-act play The Zoo Story as Act Two in this full length work with a new first act, Homelife. Peter, a tweedy book editor, and his wife, Ann, are having an everyday conversation which takes an unexpected turn into dangerously personal territory. It's the kind of talk that can drive a husband out for a walk—to Central Park, where Jerry, a desperate outcast, awaits. An unforgettable pairing of Albee's original The Zoo Story with a freshly penned prequel, Edward Albee's At Home at the Zoo bares its teeth to threaten the delicately balanced world its characters inhabit. Edward Albee's At Home at the Zoo will feature Zeitgeist regulars Peter Brown (Farragut North, Spin), Christine Power (Private Fears in Public Places, Spin) and Artistic Director David J. Miller in his Zeitgeist debut onstage. The role of Jerry in The Zoo Story is a role Mr. Miller has always wanted to play since first experiencing the script over thirty years ago.
