Humbug!

Does anything warm Ebenezer Scrooge’s heart? Lyric Theatre’s newest star, Chris Bloch, er, Mr. Scrooge, gets to the core of what drives A Christmas Carol.


Features


Ebenezer Scrooge doesn’t consider the holiday season to be “the most wonderful time of the year.” In fact, he has become so known for his dislike of the season that his name has become synonymous with it. But to loathe the season? Can it be possible? Surely there is something about the season that warms this curmudgeon’s heart.
