This December, NoHo theatre landmark the Gene Frankel Theatre hosts a celebration sure to put a new face on an old classic. (Actually, 8 new faces.) The Gene Frankel Theatre is combining the artistic visions of 8 separate NYC performance groups to bring you Dickens' A Christmas Carol like never before.
Artists from every discipline, Dancers, Filmmakers, Thespians, Improv artists (and
more!) each perform their favorite chapter from Dickens' A Christmas Carol in
their own unique styles. The chapters are presented chronologically bringing the
timeless tale to eclectic life. That's 8 Scrooges on a single stage, and the festivities don't
stop between the acts. Host Janie Martinez keeps the patrons entertained with partygames
and other elfish surprises along the way.
Artists scheduled to participate include
Rash Behaviour - the improv comedy group headed by Kenny Wade Marshall, and alumni performers at Caroline's on Broadway.
Damon Pooser - Actor/writer/director seen on Law and Order and a student of Gene Frankel.
Wide Eyed Productions - Recently heralded by nytheatre.com for their mesmerizing Medea.
Brian Bernhard - Creator/Director of the acclaimed television show "Art of Something Like It" sneaks an original short film into the mix.
