Unless the program is Downton Abbey, I don’t normally watch PBS. However, while scanning channels the other night I came across A Christmas Carol: The Concert, which is a new musical.
Certainly we all know the timeless Dickens classic that’s been retold and remade in so many different ways. Most of them boring and unimaginative, some of them fun.
A Christmas Carol: The Concert add a Broadway-type pizzazz to the old time production, mixing spoken dialogue with vocal and instrumental arrangements to retell the story.
