Dopo molte tappe in tante citta italiane approda al Teatro Quirino di Roma la nuova versione tutta italiana di A CHRISTMAS CAROL, la piu classica e piu rappresentata storia di Natale di cui non si contano le tante rappresentazioni teatrali. Con anche piu di 50 versioni cinematografiche e televisive e tratta dall'opera di Charles Dickens, il musical racconta la storia di Ebenezer Scrooge, della sua avarizia e egoismo e della sua redenzione dopo aver vissuto una notte molto intensa con la visita degli spettri dei Natali passato, presente e futuro: messo di fronte alle sue cattiverie e alla sua solitudine, il vecchio usuraio si libera delle sue colpe, si riavvicina alla sua famiglia e ai suoi dipendenti sino ad allora sfruttati e malpagati riscoprendo il vero senso del Natale. La Compagnia dell'Alba ha portato in scena la versione musicata nel 1994 da Alan Menken, il pluripremiato compositore di tanti film della Disney con impeccabile professionalita e in collaborazione con il Teatro Stabile D'Abruzzo e la New Step di Americo Di Francesco e Paola Lancioni.

The idea of stunt casting, the practice of taking a big name and putting them in a role just to get butts in seats, has always terrified me. And I've seen it result anywhere from the sublime such as Neil Patrick Harris killing it as "Hedwig" to the shudder inducing Molly Ringwald completely out of her depth as the world's oldest taxi dancer in "Sweet Charity". And while the 5th Avenue's couple of stunt casts, specifically rock royalty Micky Thomas of Starship as club owner Dennis and Galen Disston of the Seattle rock band Pickwick as the romantic lead Drew, in their current production of "Rock of Ages" were nowhere near the latter, when it came to delivering a line or executing some choreography, you could definitely tell the musical theater folks from the rockers. However, when it came to wailing out some amazing rock songs, those stunt casts had no equal, so all told, it amounted for a pretty awesome show. But we'll get to specifics in a minute.
