A Christmas Carol, by
A Christmas to remember
Monday, December 22, 2003
5.0
I am glade to see that many people have given Cobb Playhouse’s “A Christmas Carol” good reviews.
I too saw the show on Saturday night and I must say I was thrilled to see the energy that most of the actors put into their characters and the production.
To start the evening off, I thought it was a nice rendition of the play. There were many comedic moments in the show. I didn’t expect that to happen, but it was a nice surprise. The Fezziwig party scene was hilarious, I laughed when Mrs. Fezziwig (Cheri Maddox) came dashing from behind the curtain in her party dress with flowers in her red hair. I immediately thought of the show “I Love Lucy” and Lucy trying to get in on the action. It is a scene that will keep you guessing what will happen next.
I thought that Scrooge (Randy Randolph) was good with his character, but I felt as though he was anxious to get his lines out. Never the less, he did a wonderful job in his role.
But the scene that really set it off for me was the young Scrooge/Belle scene.
Shawn Loflin and Rachel Eblen played the parts brilliantly. The chemistry that the two of them have together on stage is invaluable. It was a very heart felt moment when I heard the words coming from Scrooge’s quivering lips, “I love you”. And seeing the emotions and tears that filled the eyes of someone that was losing the love of their life was a vision that stuck in my mind throughout the remainder of the show. I certainly hope that the two of them continue to do shows together, because I will be there to watch it.
I must say, even though there weren’t as many props and the caroling wasn’t as extravagant, I personally thought and felt it was better than the Alliance Theater’s version. I highly recommend and urge you to go see Cobb Playhouse’s version of “A Christmas Carol”.
