As a culture, we’ve become quite attached to Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol for its ability to touch the hearts of many and give us that warm, fuzzy feeling only the holiday season can bring. Dickens, however, could not be more sick of it. Although Charles wrote this winter-time classic in 1843, he’d much rather not have to recite it every December for the past 169 years.
The Building Stage in Chicago’s industrial West Loop, as a sort of celebration for the 200th anniversary of Dickens’ birth, will feature Blake Montgomery as he reads this merry-time tale in a warm, Victorian atmosphere. The performance will include treats and traditions you and your family and friends will not want to miss so purchase your tickets online and “begrudgingly” immerse yourself in the holiday spirit!
