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

At the present I'd like to go to bed

I've always been a fan of a Christmas Carol.... seen almost every version.... from Henry Winkler in "An American X-Mas Carol", to the western "Ebeneezer", and of course the classic with Alastair Sim... my all time favorite.
But after watching some of this show... I don't know. It's kinda like watching a Twilght Zone version of this classic... some of the music was extremely annoying... like the dance number at Feziwigs (not sure how to spell it).... it sounded like a damn machine gun!
I've always liked Kelsey Grammar... be he Fraiser or Side Show Bob.... but this version just doesn't have the same... feeling as the others.... too much dancing and singing.
Give me Alastair Sim or Patrick Stewart on stage any time! This is a great story.... but makes a poor musical!
