The New York Times

for a previous production "As welcoming as this production is, it is not for those under 6 or 7. While the Ghosts of Christmas Past and Present are ebullient, and Marley borders on silly, the Ghost of Christmas Future completely captures Dickens’ vision. Faceless, swathed in black and gliding eerily, it made even the second and third graders near me cringe. And why not? Without menace, the story loses its full moral impact." Full Review

for a previous production "Charles Dickens’ classic novella is being given a delightful and boisterous musical adaptation, presented by Be Bold! Productions and the Players Theatre. Children and adults will be greatly entertained by this brisk production that captures the spirit of the story with much comedy, drama, and unique musical accompaniment...Bell has made it fresh for those familiar with the story, and a great introduction for those who might be experiencing it for the first time."
