A CHRISTMAS CAROL: THE TALE OF EBENEZER SCROOGE Florida Rep
ADAPTED AND DIRECTED BY MARK SHANAHAN
"This world premiere of a new adaptation of 'A Christmas Carol' will leave you with tear-stained cheeks, or a sudden case of the sniffles...I’ve seen my share of Christmas Carols... This is one of the best, as enjoyable as Christmas itself...
'A Christmas Carol: The Tale of Ebenezer Scrooge' is authentic and genuine. There’s a certain purity to it, a purity of joy and spirit... As Scrooge says to some singing children, “A Christmas carol can save your mortal soul.” So can this 'Christmas Carol.'"
"Spirited and Superb!... Puts a fresh spin on a classic, much-loved Christmas tale. This world premiere, adapted from the Charles Dickens classic by Mark Shanahan, tells the story of Ebenezer Scrooge in a new, captivating way... the production was beautifully smooth... It was a beautiful adaptation, and I encourage you to see it whether you've seen A CHRISTMAS CAROL previously or not, as this was quite possibly the best version of the story I've seen."
