Scrooge & Marley is a modern variation on Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. Recounted from a gay sensibility with heart, comedy & music, the magic of Dickens' timeless tale of a man's redemption comes alive from a fresh perspective.
A modern day variation on Charles Dickens' classic story of the holidays, A Christmas Carol. On Christmas Eve, Ben Scrooge, the man who hates the holidays, is given the chance to begin again when he is visited by three spirits -- the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future. Revisiting the tragic missteps of his life enables Scrooge to rediscover the joy of the holiday season and make a journey back to love. Recounted from a gay sensibility with heart, comedy and music, the magic of Dickens' timeless tale comes alive from a fresh perspective that will appeal to audiences of all persuasions. Written by
Here's a story... of a GAY man named 'Scrooge'... who was living all alone... then one day he met a FELLOW.......
Scrooge is gay here and so is his niece, Freda (her main squeeze is called Mary). A 'new twist' on Dickens' classic Christmas tale appeases the LGBT community as well as garnering attention from the media... just like it was intended to do. Too bad the writing is preoccupied with its own spectacularism while being too afraid to go out on the limb it created to say what it really wanted to say - if anything.
Now you know what you're NOT missing. Pass on this one like a holiday fruitcake.
