Work that humbug out with some holiday laughs! Second City alums and veteran Comedy Central writers Peter Gwinn and Bobby Mort have dreamed up this new twisted version of A Christmas Carol, infused with hilarious improv sketches and zany characters written specifically for its cast of L.A.-based Second City alumni. Scrooge, Tiny Tim, three ridiculous ghosts and a cast of The Second City's funniest alums take the Kirk Douglas stage by storm, as wicked satire, daring improv and a host of guest celebs run rampant throughout the Victorian streets.

RGS is poignant and masterful at his craft. The material presented seems intended for those who are major sports/baseball fans and falls short of including the audience as a whole. The show runs 1/2 hour too long but RGS tries his best to bring several layers to his performance to keep it moving.
Quotes & Highlights
- "Roger Guenveur Smith believes in the interconnectedness of history: that our lives, big and small, are enmeshed in the great tangle of events, big and small."--Rachel Saltz, The New York Times
The Watts Towers Project was a high point of Solomania! at the Douglas in 2006. Smith returns with an equally powerful and poetic work based on the true story of baseball legends Juan Marichal and John Roseboro and the infamous 1965 day when Marichal turned and hit Roseboro in the head with his bat. Smith witnessed the event on television and passionately presents it as part of a greater story that encompasses the Watts riots, Catholicism, the notions of marriage,family and, ultimately, redemption and forgiveness.
