  • I had the honor of seeing Patrick Stewart on Broadway . His rendition was something I’ll never forget! Thanks much for the Christmas Carol reference as no matter who we are or where we have come from, we need to be reminded of what the spirit of Christmas is all about! Best to you both for a wonderful season and new year! You ladies rock!!!

    • My favorite version of A Christmas Carol is the 1951 version with Alastair Sim, one of my favorite actors. I always thought those Children were pretty powerful. If you have time over Christmas, I recommend the book “The Man Who Invented Christmas” about Charles Dickens. I haven’t seen the movie yet, but I hope to and I hope it is at good as the book.

      • Ralph Richardson is a truly great actor.

      • YES! My very favorite also and the only one I watch. A masterpiece that, ironically, was thought “too dark” by American audiences at the time.

    • I’ve always loved mr. Magoo’s christmas carol since 1964. The words spoken are accurate and story right out of Dickens book. An added bonus are wonderful songs. And its all done within an hour. Give it a try and you will love it,too,imo.

  • I, too, saw Patrick Stewart embody “A Christmas Carol” on Broadway, and for his curtain call, he just stood still, and held up a copy of the book. It was truly one of those magical, memorable theater experiences.

    Which, by the way, there is an audio recording of!

    • We had that audio version and listened to it in the car many a time when our kids were littles. It was so good! Wish we still had it (although I could probably find a copy online somewhere.)

  • About 30 years ago my children played Ignorance and Want in a local theater production of A Christmas Carol. Thanks for helping that memory bubble up and make me smile.

  • We would listen to the recording of Lionel Barrymore as Scrooge. To me, the best movie Scrooge and ‘A Christmas Carol’ was the one with Alistair Sim. “God bless us, every one!”
