Both charming and disturbing, The Suit combines a rich musical score with remarkably simple staging as it tells the story of a husband who doles out an unusual punishment to his cheating wife: He asks that she treat her lover's abandoned suit as a guest of honor in their home. Accompanying her wherever she goes, the suit becomes a whimsical yet cruel reminder of her infidelity. African melodies interweave with jazz standards to underscore this surprising, sharp-witted tale set in Apartheid-era Johannesburg, in a haunting production that integrates virtuosic musicians directly into the action.

A holiday tradition not to be missed. Scrooge is a mix of humor with a humble spirit. Although you know the story, one can't help but sit on edge as the spirits appear and you're transported once again to a Dicken's tale. The cast is terrific, the stage and costumes outstanding. Even balcony seats are good. At the end the cast doesn't just accept applaude, they celebrate the season and thank the audience for coming and wish us all a wonderful holiday. The perfect moment that embraces the essence of "A Christmas Carol". Definitely put this performance on your holiday list.
