Conceived originally on the east coast, writers Gordon Greenberg and Steve Rosen worked with The Old Globe to adapt this play for San Diego, literally. It takes Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" characters and narratives, and sets them all in turn of the 20th century San Diego. This is a comedy with music, and of course a hefty dose of absurdity based on the setting alone. Plus, the costume design is by the talented David Israel Reynoso, so this promises to be a really visually stunning production.

I don't want to say something like "If you only see one 'A Christmas Carol,' make it this," but… if you're not one to connect to those traditional wintry London scenes, then this one's for you.

Details: On stage through Dec. 26. Shows this weekend are Friday at 7 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.

From the theater:
Back by popular demand, San Diego’s newest show for its Christmas stocking is a fast, funny and highly theatrical reimagining of Dickens' "A Christmas Carol." Audiences of all ages will cheer this riotous Dickens' mashup!

Nov. 19, 2021 through Dec. 26, 2021
