"One of the pleasures of A
CHRISTMAS CAROL, Charles Dickens' timeless tale of grinchiness
transformed into generosity through the bewitching power of the
Christmas spirit, lies in the familiarity.
Just as we know the coyote will tumble over a 4,000-foot cliff in his pursuit of the roadrunner, we're intimately acquainted with Ebenezer Scrooge's fall from his pinnacle of nastiness. From his first, venom-filled `Good afternoon!', we chuckle with the foreknowledge that the old dirtbag is headed for a VERY rough night.... Jerry Patch's keenly crafted adaptation assures us this distant 19th century English world is not unlike our own. Bob Cratchit and his wife display spousal traits that seem surprisingly contemporary."
