Reviews

"Musically high-spirited! Infectiously jolly!"

- The Washington Post

"Dickens’s tale seems right at home in Ford’s Theatre! [It takes] full advantage of the 19th-century architecture and charm of the historic playhouse. Ingenious set pieces and special effects heighten the magic of Dickens’s holiday tale."

- DC Theatre Scene

"Offers feel-good holiday cheer, suspense and sheer entertainment. It's quite remarkable to watch [Craig Wallace's] transformation from the miserly and unforgiving Scrooge to a generous and witty Scrooge. The show is fun for all ages; a must-see this holiday season."

- DMV Collective
