Manual Cinema's Christmas Carol

Manual Cinema

When: Wednesdays-Sundays. Continues through Dec. 31 2020
Price: $15-$50

Manual Cinema presents a live streaming version from their studios of the Charles Dickens classic via Marquee TV. In this adaptation by Drew Dir, Sarah Fornace, Ben Kauffman, Julia Miller, and Kyle Vegter (a co-commission with Writers Theatre), "holiday skeptic" Aunt Trudy has been recruited to recapture her late husband Joe's love of the holidays through a Zoom puppet show, in which the puppets begin to take on lives of their own. Each performance is followed by a Q&A session. This production is also part of a package with Writers Theatre called Two Scrooges: A Christmas Carol, Two Ways, which includes Writers artistic director Michael Halberstam's One-Man A Christmas Carol (see separate listing).
