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.

Focusis on national presidential campaigns from the viewpoint of the candidates battle-hardened and smarmy staff.While Act I is a
bit dull,after the intermission the histrionics begin with the key characters
triple-crossing one another,spewing forth the "f" word frequently and
taking turns with the fetching.intern.Despite the puerile script,the acting is
great and one can even feel some sympathy for the bad guys
Dirty tricks, questionable journalism, sex with interns – all the things that make American politics great are on display in Farragut North, the ultimate political power play. Set during a close presidential race on the eve of the Iowa caucuses, a young press secretary’s perceived invincibility is shattered as he falls prey to backroom politics, manipulation from campaign veterans, and the wiles of a seductive young intern. With quick-witted banter and an inside look into the unique beast called the American Political Machine, Farragut North is a timely tale of hubris, loyalty and the lust for power.
