MOS’ ‘Scrooge’ unwraps Christmas cheer

Stage Review

December 5, 2013

A key component to keeping Christmas entertainment poignant is children. Last weekend at the Historic Iao Theater, "Scrooge - the Musical" opened with a half dozen kids singing traditional Christmas carols. That opening evolved into the first number of the show, and proud parents aside, the moment was touching to strangers as well. There were a few opening night "oops" moments, and I wished the entire cast could sing louder, but "Scrooge," about 20 minutes in, got its groove back, and Brian Connolly's performance in the title role is a triumph.
