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.

Infinitesimal Kushner: Important philosophical, social, moral, political questions trivialized to obscenity. Pun intended.
Director's choice incomprehensible to me.
Houk was pretty good though, trying to get 3D out of his cartoonish characters
