By : Charles Dickens
Adapted by : Romulus Linney
Directed by : Peter Amster
The beloved family classic returns to Central New York after a seven year absence in an adaptation new to Syracuse audiences. “I was amazed not only at its beauty and durability, but its blazing theatricality,” playwright Romulus Linney once noted of Dickens’ most famous Christmas story. “It is part Hamlet, in its devastating revelations by fantastic ghosts, part Everyman, in its sure progression toward spiritual salvation, and part Charlie Chaplin, in its fun and overflowing good spirits.”
The Late Romulus Linney was the founding playwright of NYC’s Signature Theatre Company, which named a theatre in his honor. Peter Amster returns to Syracuse Stage, where he directed Moby Dick, The 39 Steps, This Wonderful Life and The Fantasticks.
