WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

SourceWorks Theatre presents the return of A Queer Carol, a play by Joe Godfrey that resets the Dickens classic amongst a group of gay men in contemporary Manhattan. Featuring television's Danny Pintauro, best known for his starring role on ABC-TV's Who's The Boss, and directed by SourceWorks Artistic Director Mark Cannistraro. This contemporary spin on the timeless holiday tale casts the famous characters in a new light. Ebenezer "Ben" Scrooge is a wealthy and prominent interior designer who spends his days decorating the Upper East Side homes of the rich and famous. Assisting Scrooge is none other than the put-upon young Bob Cratchit, who must contend with both his employer's abuses and the care of his partner Tim, an East Village office temp struggling with HIV. When Scrooge huffily dismisses a fundraiser collecting for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, it sets a chain of ghostly visitations into motion, including appearances from the very dead?and very buff--Jake Marley as well as the Ghosts Of Christmas Past (who bears a striking resemblance to Marilyn Monroe), Present and Future. There is a 2-drink minimum. Schedule December 2nd at 9:00 PM December 4th at 7:00 PM December 6th at 11:00 PM December 7th at 7:00 PM December 10th at 7:00 PM December 13th at 11:00 PM December 15th at 10:00 PM
