Over the weekend (and just in time for Christmas), the two-man production featuring actor Jeffries Thaiss and musician Eric Scott Anthony conducted an engaging and unique Dickens experience to get the crowd in the holiday spirit.

If you've seen Drunk History on television you will understand the vibe of this show.  Imagine you have an elderly uncle who is of Czech descent.  He has a marvelous collection of marionettes.  After a few shots of Becherovka he invites the family down into the basement for an impromptu retelling (and updating) of a Christmas classic.  That is the best way to describe A Christmas Carol, Oy! Hanukkah, Merry Kwanzaa, Happy Ramadan.

Con l'avvicinarsi delle feste natalizie in tutto il mondo si rispolverano le varie versioni della celebre novella CANTO DI NATALE di Charles Dickens, a tutti i livelli e in tutte le sue forme: d'altra parte è l'unico periodo dell'anno in cui ha senso rappresentarla. Non tutte le versioni hanno però lo stesso peso e lo stesso valore; in ognuna c'è qualcosa che manca all'altra e viceversa. Questa versione dell'opera scritta dal Maestro Simone Martino già alcuni anni fa, viene presentata in forma concerto dimostrando varie pecche dal punto di vista dell'allestimento, della gestione degli spazi e nella necessità di dover presentare al pubblico una versione ridotta rispetto alla stesura originale: nonostante questo l'atmosfera che si è creata nel piccolo Teatro degli Eroi è stata quasi magica. E non è solo per la magia del Natale.

On the Thursday, December 19th edition of a?oeTamron Hall,a?? LaChanze and Celia Rose Gooding, the first mother-daughter duo to perform on Broadway at the same time, join Tamron for a special Christmas performance, and to discuss their relationship and careers. When Tamron asked whether they knew they were making history, Celia Rose, who is making her Broadway debut in a?oeJagged Little Pill,a?? explained that they knew of other parent-child duos who have performed on Broadway, but didn't realize they were the first to perform at the same time. She also noted how monumental it was that a black mother-daughter duo hit this milestone and took pride in the progress that the theater community has made in terms of inclusion and diversity.

From what I can tell, THE CHRISTMAS REVELS is one of those much-loved traditions that people look forward to revisiting year after year, like a performance of THE NUTCRACKER or A CHRISTMAS CAROL, or taking the kids to see Santa Claus. However, unlike those other holiday seasonal shows, the REVELS is billed as a celebration of the winter solstice, and it not only allows, but encourages (requires?) the audience to participate in a number of singalongs throughout the program. This year marks the 49th annual REVELS, but it was my first experience, which caused me to wonder what took me so long. Each year features a different cultural theme and this year's journey takes us back to the 1930s, to Dust Bowl-era America.
