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.

This play was awful. After we struggled to get into S.F. to see this, we were so disappointed that the acting and the play itself was so amaturish. It could have been a high school cast! We walked out after 20 minutes and felt we wasted our entire day. This is not the quality of entertainment we expect from Goldstar. In looking over the audience from the balcony where we sat, it look like there had been a snow storm in the theater with all the white on the roof tops! For some, I guess it sufficed as an afternoon out.
In the "explosively hilarious" (London's Guardian) third installment of Alan Ayckbourn's acclaimed trilogy The Norman Conquests, librarian Norman, to whom family members refer as a "badly built haystack," channels his inner Casanova in fervent attempts to seduce his two sisters-in-law, as well as his estranged wife, during a weekend family gathering.
In this sex farce full of unfulfilled desire, Tony Award–winning director John Rando (Urinetown, the Musical) allows us a satisfying voyeuristic gaze into Ayckbourn's "gleefully torrid little world" (Entertainment Weekly).
