WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
This one-night-only benefit reading of Crispin Whittell's adaptation of Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol stars David Hyde Pierce as Ebenezer Scrooge. The cast also features his fellow Frasier alumni Edward Hibbert and John Glover, as well as Richard Topol (Indecent), Tony nominee Kathryn Meisle (Tartuffe), Mary Lou Rosato (Once Upon a Mattress), Brian Reddy (Cat on a Hot Tin Roof), Obie winner Angela Pierce (Oslo), and others. With this reading, the Acting Company celebrates the holiday season through the timeless story of the curmudgeonly Scrooge and his discovery of kindness and compassion. With the help of four persuasive ghosts, Scrooge undergoes a miraculous Christmas Eve transformation as he views with new eyes his past, his present, and the possibilities of the future.
