BWW Review: A CHRISTMAS CAROL at Hartford Stage BWW Review: A CHRISTMAS CAROL at Hartford Stage
by Joseph Harrison - Dec 3, 2017

It's a story most of us have heard or witnessed before. Crotchety and greedy old Ebenezer Scrooge, complaining about the poor, turning down the invitation of his nephew to Christmas dinner, and begrudgingly giving Bob Cratchit the day off for Christmas. We fondly remember past portrayals of Scrooge face to face with the ghost of his ex-partner Jacob Marley, flying through the past and present with amiable spirits and having a change of heart after coming face to face with his own death. At Hartford Stage this season, the story comes to life once again in the form of A CHRISTMAS CAROL A GHOST STORY OF CHRISTMAS. The classic story by Charles Dickens and as adapted and originally directed by Michael Wilson is an annual tradition for Hartford Stage, and one that takes on new life in this, its 20th anniversary.

Presented by Payomet Performing Arts Center, this critically-acclaimed show will run for ten performances startingWednesday,September 6th through Sunday, September 17th.  Also in P-Town this September (through October 15th), the Provincetown Art Association and Museum (PAAM) is holding an Edward and Josephine Hopper exhibition featuring their recent acquisition of 96 drawings by Edward Hopper, 69 drawings and watercolors by his wife, Jo, and 22 diaries dating between from 1933-1956 chronicling the Hoppers' lives on Cape Cod and beyond.
