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.

We especially didn't appreciate Kiki's irreverant comments about religion especially those aimed at the Catholic Church, the pope, Jerry Falwell's death, and George W. Bush. Had we known that this supposedly funny material would be included, we wouldn't have attended. It is unfortunate that some acts stoop to such levels to get a laugh from a few members of an audience. We failed to see magic happen as promised by Kiki. In Kiki's words, "We dared to SUCK." We won't make that mistake again.
Quotes & Highlights
- "Kiki & Herb: Alive on Broadway are alive with a capital A. Irresistibly full-bodied art and perverse showbiz genius. A magnified cabaret concert that has the heat and dazzle of great balls of fire." --The New York Times
- Top Ten List & "Best of 2006" in The New York Times
Not satisfied simply doing endless versions of cabaret standards, Kiki & Herb display their unique musical prowess reinventing popular songs by great 20th- and 21st-century artists like Wu-Tang Clan, Joni Mitchell, Styx, Pat Benatar, Radiohead, Nirvana, Bonnie Tyler, and Britney Spears. Kiki DuRane is a brash, boozy, septuagenarian chanteuse. She's never much cared what other people think, but she's always willing to say what she thinks. Onstage with her stalwart accompanist and only living friend Herb, Kiki somehow stumbles her way through a selection of songs, punctuated by political rants, searching social commentary, and recollections of a lifetime filled with unforgettable memories.
