Total fun and entertainment with a great cast

See it if for a smart, funny, local interpretation of this classic story presented with great performers, music dance, sets and lighting. Wonderful!

Don't see it if I can't think of a single reason not to see this. It's Dickens for our times.

Don't see it if if you do not like updated versions of plays or if you don't like the music of 21st century Harlem. But you would miss out on lots of fun!

The show that should become a yearly new york city xmas tradition!, Loved it all: the staging, performances, singing, dancing and choreography!, Must see, A very intelligent new york adaptation of the dickens classic, A xmas show that very much deserves a broadway venue

See it if You love a Christmas Carol but are open to seeing it adapted to a New York City Ebenezer Scrooge as a greedy & opportunistic rent slumlord.

Don't see it if Yet another adaptation of Charles Dickens's 'A Christmas Carol' leaves you with a 'buh humbug' feeling of wretchedness. Read more
