A Christmas Carol – at ACT Theatre through Dec 30

Guest review from my mom, Jeanne Kinley Deller:

ACT’s 40th Anniversary production of A Christmas Carol is sure to be a crowd-pleaser as it welcomes patrons to yet another holiday season. This show is particularly well-suited to ACT’s theatre-in-the-round staging, allowing for constant flow and dynamic set changes.

Having experienced A Christmas Carol at various theatres over the last decades (from Seattle to Montana to Minnesota and back), it was refreshing to find a different take on this particular production adapted by Gregory A. Falls. Costuming and staging were both fresh and well orchestrated.

Artistic Director Kurt Beattie held his own as the hard-hearted Ebenezer Scrooge throughout the performance attended by this reviewer (Kurt Beattie and Charles Leggett, debuting in the Scrooge role, are alternating performances).

Rob Burgess, in his roles as Mr. Fezziwig and Topper, is not to be missed!  Dynamic, fun, funny, highly entertaining in every facial expression and move – one to follow after the holiday season subsides.

A delightful family Christmas Tradition, A Christmas Carol runs now through December 30th. Enjoy!
