Inspired by Charles Dickens' Great Expectations, the work unites worlds divided by geography, privilege, and time.

BWW Reviews: The Imaginary Theatre Company's Delightful BAH! HUMBUG!BWW Reviews: The Imaginary Theatre Company's Delightful BAH! HUMBUG!
by Chris Gibson - Dec 22, 2014

The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis's Imaginary Theatre Company has produced a wonderful musical spoof of Charles Dickens' holiday classic, A Christmas Carol, titled BAH! HUMBUG!. There have been so many different takes on the original story that one would think it's already been played out, but this standard will probably never go out of style. Jack Herrick (book, music and lyrics) does a marvelous job of making it all seem fresh again with a number of catchy little tunes, and a plethora of gags that make use of cultural references that will amuse both children and adults. If you've got a wee one you'd like to introduce to this vintage tale, I definitely recommend that you take the time to see this show. (more...)
