Entertaining, Unique in today's directing environment, Well acted

See it if you would enjoy a story that is about the journey of a supporting character in a Christmas Classic and enjoy "radio" plays

Don't see it if you need a show that embraces it's "de facto" target audience. Read more

Entertaining, Funny, Quirky

See it if You want a fresh take on an old tale.

Don't see it if You are bringing children or if you want to see a well written play. The actors do very well for what "script" they have to work with.

Gender-bender, Edgy, Quirky, Thought-provoking, Confusing

See it if a modern mix on an old tale; essentially a new story line featuring Marley; interesting conceptually; like Marvel's Loki x CC mashup

Don't see it if it was like a daycare there; kids & parents talking through the entire play; kids banging on the wall & parents not controlling their kids!

Not christmassy at all!

See it if you're a "Christmas Carol" completist. (That's one of the reasons I went!)

Don't see it if you want fun, festive holiday entertainment. And don't take young kids. Read more

Slow, intertwined narration and conversation,

See it if You like small casts in a small theatre, know the story of A Christmas Carol very well and love it in any format.

Don't see it if It bothers you to hear narration and then conversation, don't know the story of A Christmas Carol, if using your imagination is difficult

Quirky, Disappointing, Great acting

See it if you want to see great acting. Some funny lines and actors brought more out of the script.

Don't see it if you want to be entertained with a well-written script. It had some confusing/boring parts.
