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.

Very good play. Highly recommended!! Don't be put of by the fact it is 3 hours long.It is well worth it and there is not a bad seat in the theatre. Even if you do not know the history of Zimbabwe, there is enough info available in the lobby to get you up to date. It is not only about the history of Southern Africa but it also explains why it is the way it is today.
Very compelling story and a real tour de force for the actors. Excellent!!
I also loved the fact that some lines are in Shona language.

So grateful I chose to see this play! I haven't been that moved and inspired in a while at the theatre. Danai Gurira is a poet. She definitely has a REASON to write and it comes through brilliantly - And the acting is absolutely superb.
