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.

Lady is Craig Wright's enormously moving drama about three friends on a hunting trip which weighs in wisely on the nature of change, distance and truth. The characters include a pro-Bush, pro-Cheney, pro-war politician and a loving dog that just wants to be a good girl. One of them won't survive the day. Lady was nominated for a 2008-2009 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play.
Graham, a hawkish conservative Democrat, is in town from Washington, where his friends long ago helped to send him, Kenny with some inherited money and Dyson by managing his campaign for Congress. "Those were different times," Dyson says, furious now that Graham has morphed into someone whose principles he abhors, and genuinely frightened for his son, who listened to Graham talk last night at the Elks Club and promptly announced he was joining the Marines. Dyson begs, pleads, demands and threatens Graham into talking his son out of his seemingly irrational act; Graham is unmoved by Dyson’s protestations, resulting in a climatic confrontation.
Playwright Wright says his play is "about unfaithfulness: unfaithfulness to spouses, unfaithfulness to friends, unfaithfulness to patriotic ideals and unfaithfulness to the simple innocence of life's desire to live.'' Wright has been nominated for an Emmy Award, and is the creator of TV’s Dirty Sexy Money, having also written for Six Feet Under, Lost and Brothers & Sisters. His theater credits include The Pavilion, Recent Tragic Events, Orange Flower Water, Grace and numerous others. The Pavilion, was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize, the American Theatre Critics' Association Best New Play Award, and a 2005-2006 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play.
