“electrifying performances — driven by a powerhouse cast,” “an instant holiday classic,” “a glorious new musical version of the classic” -Josh Getlin, HUFFINGTON POST

“A superb cast of five, an orchestra and a chorus come together in the most imaginative, wonderful and exciting version of the story since CBS presented a version starring George C. Scott in the early ’80s.” -MARK YOUR CALENDAR WITH TOM BRINKMOELLER

“And it is during the ghost of Christmas past flashback to when Scrooge’s love dumps him for loving money more than her that the best song of the show occurs. It is a pretty duet between Scrooge and Arya Daire as Belle.”  “cast of Chicago theater luminaries” –

“riveting” -BROADWAY WORLD

“Arya Daire as Belle, Scrooge’s former fiance, has a bit more beefed up of a part than I remember from previous productions, but this one benefits all the more for it.” -Jason Howard, INFLUX

“I didn’t move until Belle (Arya Daire) and Scrooge’s (Michael Aaron Linder) break up scene. Who knew a break up could be so emotional? I moved to grab tissues; I knew I would need more.” -UNCONVENTIONAL LIBRARIAN
