A.C.T.'s acclaimed, music-infused adaptation of Dickens' beloved tale returns, in a sumptuous production that's become one of the Bay Area's favorite holiday traditions. A large, lively cast tells the story of lonely old miser Ebenezer Scrooge, a bah-humbuggy sort who's shown a second chance by four ghosts who visit him one spooky Christmas Eve. A classic story of redemption and forgiveness, A Christmas Carol captures the true spirit and magic of the holiday season, especially in this imaginative version written by A.C.T.'s own artistic director Carey Perloff and alumnus Paul Walsh.

I am a Samuel Beckett fan and a Bill Irwin fan and so I was well prepared to enjoy this show. We had inexpensive seats in the back of the mezzanine and we were able to see everything perfectly. There were moments of humor and moments of horror and sadness. Above all I enjoy the words and the words were well conveyed. I was not blown away, but it was an enjoyable evening of thoughtful theater.
