Delightfully surprised. The staging, scripting, costumes and overall experience were stellar. I like this small production much better than the bigger Christmas Carol's at more commercial companies. Go see this delightful production. (Plus, where...continued

An enjoyable spin on the classic, enthusiastically performed. But the "VIP seats" option should really be deleted -- it's all open seating and the "VIP seat" really meant a free drink coupon.

This was a wonderful Japanese interpretation of Dickens's Christmas Carol. The theater was small and comfortable and the performance excellent.

Very creative adaptation of Christmas Carol in Noh style. I'm not familiar with Noh, but I assume stylized movements, pauses and exaggerated speech of Scrooge were traditional elements and I loved them. Great snacks for sale too: mulled wine and...continued

Very well done, creative take on Dickens's Christmas Carol in Noh style, with an especially strong performance by Scrooge. Very welcoming small theater space with mulled wine for only $5! Loved it!

I always enjoy the Theatre of Yugen Noh Space productions, but their Noh Christmas Carol absolutely blew me away! I was surprised to find myself in tears by the end. Kabuki theatre, with interactions with a spirit realm being a common trope,...continued

Lovely small theater venue- beautiful set and costumes. Although the cast members are not Japanese they bring a wonderful spirit to the production. Highly recommended at this price.

I am baffled that this show had so many fawning reviews. It was painfully slow (even being familiar with the deliberate and studied pace of Noh) and the casting of non-Asian actors but the use of VERY exaggerated faux-Japanese accents was...continued

I've meant to see a performance at the Theater of Yugen for decades. Glad to finally make one and not to be disappointed!

This was my first Noh performance. Not every day one gets to experience Japanese Noh in America in English. Put a new spin to a popular performance. Amazing what they can do with a limited cast.
