Dickens' timeless holiday fave undergoes a radically entertaining remaking courtesy of the famed Wanderlust Circus and quirky local chamber-music ensemble 3 Leg Torso. Acrobats, aerialists, jugglers, jazz-bos, crooners and clowns combine to create a completely new take on the Scrooge story, though the cranky old gent still learns the true meaning of Christmas. The score is provided by 3 Leg Torso, formerly a trio and now a quintet. Their wholly original sound is an eclectic mix of classical, tango, klezmer, Latin and world music, and their well-known fans range from Penn & Teller's Teller to director Morgan Spurlock (Supersize Me).

Kim has a wonderful singing and speaking voice, but we were expecting to be gripping the seats, biting our nails, waiting to be scared by eerie ghost stories, and they were nice, not really scary (maybe we're too old to be scared!). We enjoyed her limited amount of singing and guitar playing. We did leave at intermission. The theater is a cute theater, nice little bar for snacks or wine, or actually quite a nice selection.
