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.

Quotes & Highlights
Cornerstone Stage Company presents Outside the Wire at the BCA Black Box. This is an original play written by Jimi Stanton and directed by Daniel Marcum. Inspired by a true story, this play will move you to tears, bring you to the edge of your seat, and illuminate the reality that “war is only half the battle.”
Outside the Wire is a play so many soldiers and their families will identify with and a present-day story that must be told through live theater. The story follows Sergeant Mark Mercer as he comes home from Iraq to find that life will never be the same. Half of the story takes place in Iraq, where he is dealing with the hardships and realities of war, while the other half takes place at home in New England, where he struggles to re-adjust to life after the Military. Through a fragmented plot, intense interactive action and film the audience begins to figure out what Mark and his fellow soldiers have gone through, and why Mark feels more connected to the life he had as a soldier in Iraq than his life as a husband and father.
