.
Famous the world over, the often bizarre and ultimately heart-warming story of Scrooge, Bob Cratchit, Tiny Tim and the others needs no detailing here. Mr. Horovitz's adaptation follows the Dickens original scrupulously but, in bringing it to life on the stage, adds elements of inventiveness and brilliant theatricality that enhance and strengthen its timeless virtues. The end result is a theatre piece of unique eloquence, which will delight audiences of all ages, and draw forth the best efforts of all engaged in its presentation.


REVIEWS

 "…Horovitz's particular talent seems to lie in maintaining remarkable fidelity to the artist whose work he adapts, losing none of the original flavor which marked their greatness. At the same time, he enlivens the work, enhancing its presentation to a modern American theatre audience in a most sublime manner." —Catholic Review.

"Children will find it engrossing, but their parents will love it." —Baltimore Sun.

"…a glorious success." —Baltimore News American.
