A Christmas Carol, by
BETTER THAN EXPECTED
Monday, December 15, 2003
5.0
After seeing the reviews that many have written about Cobb Playhouse’s version of A Christmas Carol, I had to go see for myself what all the controversy was about.
To my pleasant surprise, I thought it was an excellent show.
Sure there were some timing issues, like the long scene changes and a few missed lines, but all in all I was very impressed.

The high light of the show for me was when Younger Scrooge (played by Shawn Loflin) and Belle (played by Rachel Eblen) broke up. The emotions that filled the stage between the two of them were something that you would see from a professional actor or something that you would expect from a Broadway show. It was heart wrenching for me to see his facial expressions as Belle walked away from him. It was almost as if Shawn was really going through the emotions and feelings himself. I have seen many shows at the playhouse and I never expected an amateur actor to cry on stage.
I also enjoyed the party scene at the Fezziwig’s house. The comical timing of Mr. Fezziwig (Bob Mattox) and Dick Wilkins (Jerry Harrlow) during their sword fighting scene were priceless.

There were so many things that I enjoyed about this production and I am sorry if name weren’t mentioned. You all should be proud of this show, because you are all doing a wonderful job.
I would certainly recommend this show to anyone that wants a quiet evening away from the big city hassle.
