"Donna Migliaccio does some amazingly funny turns as the ghost of Jacob Marley and the Ghost of Christmas Present which I won’t spoil for you. Matthew Anderson covers the waterfront of male roles, from Scrooge’s nephew, the put-upon clerk, Bob Cratchit, the Spirit of Christmas Past (think Tim Conway on leave from the Old Ghosts’ Home) and so on. His jaw glides through a social class compendium of British accents from Upper Crust to Cockney, and here too it’s amazing he doesn’t trip over his own tongue. His wistful interpretation of Tiny Tim will bring tears to your eyes — not from sentiment, I can assure you".
Gary McMillan, DC Theatre Scene
"The holidays opened with a "bang" with MetroStage's "A BROADWAY CHRISTMAS CAROL" (To 12/19) which one hopes would last through 2011!...This is a highly recommended show that word-of-mouth should prove a sell-out. So get those tickets as holiday presents."
Bob Anthony, AllartsReview4u
"Charles Dickens, Broadway, vaudeville and slapstick collide merrily in “A Broadway Christmas Carol”, an early gift from Alexandria’s MetroStage. The sets are simple but effective, and the four-member cast is versatile and talented. The familiar characters from Dickens’ novel sing, dance and quip their way through Ebenezer Scrooge’s transformation from miser to good-hearted philanthropist."
Carla Branch, The Alexandria News.org
"There's very little "bah humbug" as this high-wattage, all-star cast tackles a timeless tale and gives it new life in the perfect medium for a musical message of ultimate uplift. Three talented area performers bring their Broadway-big voices and broad comedic talent to the completely audience-friendly intimacy of MetroStage and pull it off with infectious hilarity and brio".
David Hoffman, The Fairfax Times
"It’s a Vaudevillian Christmas tale from Merry Olde England, mined gleefully from Charles Dickens. We know what’s going to happen but we don’t know how we’ll get there as the parodies come at you fast and ffurious in this topsy-turvy version with all the holiday trimmings".
Jordan Wright, Alexandria Times
Hope to see you on December 12th.
