A Christmas Carol
11/15/2022 7:30 PM to 8:30 PM
CL Critic Kevin C. Madigan Recommends: This year’s rollout of Ebenezer Scrooge's tortured traipse to redemption features stunning new costumes, exciting puppetry and a reconceived set design, Alliance producers are quoted as saying. The AJC calls it “a nostalgic feast for the eyes.” A live band with keyboards, cello and violin provides a mellifluous soundtrack to the nocturnal machinations. Making her professional debut as Tiny Tim is 6-year-old Emberlynn Wood – the fourth female to play the role at the venue. Atlanta actor Andrew Benator reprises his Scrooge for the occasion; his previous Alliance credits include Everybody, Small Mouth Sounds, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest and Troubadour. “Every year about this time I start to hunger to hear this story again,” says Associate Director Christopher Moses. “No matter how isolated or cynical one has become, there is always the possibility for transformation, the chance to replace our stony hearts with generous, loving ones… affording us the chance to reaffirm certain profound truths about our shared humanity.” The production is adapted from Charles Dickens’ classic book by David H. Bell and directed by Leora Morris. A filmed version will be available to stream on the Alliance Theatre Anywhere platform from Dec. 19-Jan. 1, 2023. — KCM
