BWW Review: A CHRISTMAS CAROL at Actors Theatre Of Louisville Photo BWW Review: A CHRISTMAS CAROL at Actors Theatre Of Louisville
by Keith Waits - Dec 9, 2019

God Bless us, everyone! My childhood came back to me while witnessing the holiday classic A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. This annual production by Actors Theatre of Louisville hit all the high notes on opening night and delivered a magical feast for the eyes, ears, and heart. After four decades this production still thrills and delivers the message of redemption and kindness from the past, present, and future. I was so happy to experience it among many families and I especially enjoyed hearing and seeing children's reactions to the show.
