Scott Hale made the most of his supporting role as Scrooge, bringing the right miserly intensity, giving way to growing uncertainty and concern for his redemption and the welfare of others, to the part.
Jeni White brought a nice Kafka-esque dimension to the overly officious and punctilious but ultimately good-hearted and well-intended Record Keeper.
Winning us with its poetic and at times almost Hieronymus Bosch-like flights of poetic storytelling fancy, as well as its performances, the production, directed by Doug Van Liew, is highly recommended.
