Unit Set/Multiple Settings

All those Dickensian characters dancing, jiving and swinging to a Harlem beat? Right on! Scrooge (Gregory Hines) is a Harlem slumlord about to foreclose an apartment house, a recreation center and a church when his late partner and the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future take him on their rounds. He comes upon his own grave after watching tiny Tim's burial procession and he's reformed. Shedding his nightshirt, he orders Chinese food and Jewish deli (the only food available this Christmas morn) for the Cratchits. There's one addition to the classic tale-- a rousing gospel number in a Baptist church. Otherwise the only difference is that Scrooge, Marley, the Cratchits and all are Black.
