WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Starring Downtown theater legend Everett Quinton, and created and directed by acclaimed new-media artist Reid Farrington (of The Passion Project and Gin & "It"), Reid Farrington's A Christmas Carol takes the form of a Victorian-era phantasmagoria, conjuring up ghosts of the past, present, and future by integrating media and live theater into a live collage of the holiday classic. A total of 35 different film versions of A Christmas Carol are projected on moving screens using a modern-day version of the magic lantern. Film clips collide and combine with live performers on stage, eerily blurring the distinction between performance and video projection. This year's engagement features Quinton as Scrooge alongside projected images of Mr. Magoo, The Muppets, Alastair Sim, George C. Scott, Bill Murray, and many others.
