In this amazing solo performance, David Anderson of Walking the dog Theater plays all the characters in Charles Dickens' beloved classic!|
Through drama and masterful storytelling, David Anderson performs the story exactly as Dickens wrote it, giving the audience not only the dialogue (in multiple London accents) but the descriptive passages as well. Anderson's rendition, directed by Ted Pugh, is a modern revival of Dickens' own manner of storytelling. Dickens gave performances drawn from A Christmas Carol and The Pickwick Papers throughout the Northeastern United States, from his arrival in Boston in mid-November, 1867 to his return to England in April 1868. Walking the dog Theater's production, now in its 7th year, received high praises from Bruce Hallenbeck of The Independent, who wrote of David Anderson's performance, "Amazing one-man show. . .what Dickens intended all along!"
The Hadley Lyre Ensemble will provide live music to open the evening on Dec. 19.
