“Astounding and charming performance … ‘A Christmas Carol’ for the ages” – Jack Craib, South Shore Critic, 2013
Neil McGarry’s stunning one-man performance of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol returns to the Plymouth Center For The Arts, 11 North Street, for ONE NIGHT ONLY, on Friday, December 22nd at 7:00 pm.
Using only Charles Dickens’ original text, McGarry delivers a riveting performance of the classic holiday story. Fully staged, complete with dancing, this one-man tour de force has left critics and audiences of all ages laughing and crying with joy – and rightly so. Simultaneously moving and entertaining, the result is something much richer than expected and well worth the time and ticket price.
Directed by Ross MacDonald and created under the auspices of The Bay Colony Shakespeare Company, Neil McGarry’s one-man performance won the “Best Solo Performance of 2014” award from the Independent Reviewers of New England (IRNE) and, in 2013, was named “Best of Boston” by critic Jules Becker.
Based currently in Italy, Marshfield resident Neil McGarry, will be in the U.S. in December touring his award-winning production of the Dickens favorite for the fifth holiday season in a row. Plymouth is the final performance of the tour.
More praise from critics for this uniquely moving production:
