TCTB Review Roundup - DICKENS' CHRISTMAS CLASSIC streaming from Guthrie Theater

Gather round, #TCTheater friends: for the first time in over 9 months, we have a TCTB REVIEW ROUNDUP!

Guthrie Theater
recently released their 46th annual production of A CHRISTMAS CAROL, a film/theater hybrid called DICKENS' HOLIDAY CLASSIC that you can stream in the comfort and safety of your own home for just $10 per household (through Dec. 31).
Click here for details, and read on for some blogger thoughts.
"Not exactly theater, and not exactly film, the show combines bits of both media for an experience that is smaller, quieter, and more intimate than the CHRISTMAS CAROL we're used to seeing on the Guthrie's thrust stage, but just as lovely, engaging, and moving as ever."
"We’ve learned to improvise during this pandemic, something that theater folks are expert at. In fact, the Guthrie’s streaming version of A CHRISTMAS CAROL is delightful. They use some of their gorgeous set, which is so fun to see. Four of the finest Twin Cities actors tell the story, each taking one of the Staves, bringing life to the various characters and story."
"Stripped of the usual theatrical embellishments that make the play an annual institution, the simple beauty of this adaptation allows the message of charity, good cheer, and live-in-the-moment spirit to provide the uplift that many of us have craved for so long."
