Directed by Ross MacDonald and created under the auspices of The Bay Colony Shakespeare Company, Neil McGarry’s award-winning stunning one-man performance of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol has for the past five years inspired audiences across the northeast USA and is now on tour in Europe.
Using only Charles Dickens’ original text, McGarry delivers a riveting performance of the classic holiday story, portraying each and every character with full engagement and, somehow, making you believe you’re watching a full company of players. 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 a kaleidoscope of action, humour, and language delivered with a simplicity that disarms and touches the heart.
More praise for this uniquely moving production:
„Astounding and charming performance… A ‘Carol’ worth singing about… the story has never been so alive and real… ‘A Christmas Carol’ for the ages” – Jack Craib, South Shore Critic
“McGarry’s performance is extraordinary on many counts but one especially; his characters are all so sincere and innocently drawn, that you give yourself over to the story like a child … a magical alchemy absorbs and involves the audience and holds them spellbound” – Beverly Creasey, Boston Arts Review
“McGarry is a gifted actor… this is a performance well worth seeing” – Mike Hoban, Boston Events Insider
“McGarry deeply and brilliantly performs every character in this Victorian masterpiece… deeply moving… one of the most artistic, creative and energetic performances of the 2014 Boston theater season… an early Christmas gift I will long remember” – Dr. Al Chase, White Rhino Report
