In a new blog post, titled “It’s About Us, Here, Now,” Artie talks at length about how and why we’re presenting our version of A Christmas Carol next week.
Dickens cared for his British society, but — for us, here, now — that’s merely a quaint moment in history.
When we hear the title, “A Christmas Carol,” we smilingly recall the characters — Scrooge, Cratchit, and Tiny Tim — and the story of the three ghosts. But the story is stuck in its time: coated with 150+ years of literary dust and bestowed our deserving love and respect.
But Dickens didn’t write A Christmas Carol to be an old story. He wrote it to change England.
So, Can We Use It To Change Us, Here, Now?
