KC Repertory "Christmas Carol" review by Steve Wilson
“A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens has been performed in movies,
cartoons, by Muppets and on the stage. Some of the biggest names in
entertainment have played Ebenezer Scrooge; Jim Carrey, George C. Scott,
Michael Caine and Seymour Hicks (Scrooge in the first sound adaption in
1935). None of those performances holds a candle to the one given by
Gary Neal Johnson, the supporting cast and ensemble on Saturday night at
the Kansas City Repertory Theatre’s production of the Christmas classic.
