Storyline

Miser Ebenezer Scrooge is awakened on Christmas Eve by spirits who reveal to him his own miserable existence, what opportunities he wasted in his youth, his current cruelties, and the dire fate that awaits him if he does not change his ways. Scrooge is faced with his own story of growing bitterness and meanness, and must decide what his own future will hold: death or redemption. Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

the show was very entertining, loved the cast
4 December 2004 | by (s. new jersey) – See all my reviews

i totally disagree with the review i just read of how terrible it was. i thought it was done in taste, and i thought jesse martin in his role as present ghost was fantastic. i had no idea he was that talented, and enjoyed him very much in the show. i thought the story followed exactly what the store was about, and i liked the idea of Grammar playing Scrooge, he was terrific. i have it on tape, and i will put it in my files for a keeper. i will keep going to the present, just to watch Jesse sing and a little dancing. i was very surprised to read the review above that i just read. i don't see any of the things wrong that the person making the comment said. again, i loved it.
