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.

Reviews & Ratings
In The Circle, what goes around comes around . . . just in time for cocktail hour. A forerunner to The Constant Wife—which was a hit with critics and audiences in 2002—The Circle set the standard for W. Somerset Maugham's winning brand of social satire. The Circle begins thirty years after the fresh-faced and vivacious Lady Kitty left her politician husband for a scandalous life with his best friend. Still vivacious (but not quite as fresh-faced), the exiled lovers flounce back into town just as history is preparing to repeat itself by wreaking havoc on the marriage of Kitty's grown son, Arnold. Will practicality beat out passion this time around? Will Arnold's straying spouse be influenced by her elders' impetuous example? And will anyone be able to tolerate another game of bridge with the insufferable Lord Porteous?
