REVIEWS

“Shines a 21st-century light on an age-old tale with cleverness, wit and charm!” ~ V J Hume, C V Independent

“A charming and hilarious modernization of A Christmas Carol” ~ Catherine Randazzo, Associate Artist, Florida Studio Theatre

“If A Christmas Carol restores our love of Christmas, An Actor's Carol restores our love of Christmas AND theatre!” ~ Hal Linden, Tony Award–winning actor

“The triumph of Charles Evered’s An Actor's Carol is that it takes an old story and makes it seem new … his modernized take on Dickens’ ubiquitous holiday parable takes the Ebenezer Scrooge story out of Pre-Industrial Revolution London and plops it in a squalid playhouse where season after season of no-budget theater has been subsidized by the holiday cash cow that "A Christmas Carol" has become. It works, because Evered’s even-handed, light-hearted reinvention of the source material not only delivers Dickens’ original story of human redemption, but also adds some very relevant ideas about tolerance, inclusion and the theater” ~ Michael C Moore, Kitsap Sun
