Jacob Marley's Christmas at Actors' Playhouse through January 1

You know the classic Charles Dickens tale about miserly Ebenezer Scrooge and the ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future who scared him straight and motivated him to give his riches to charity and generally stop acting like a jerk. But what you might not know is the story told from the perspective of Scrooge's deceased business partner, Jacob Marley. In Jacob Marley's Christmas, Scrooge's pal goes from a shackled supporting character to the star of the show, as he looks to redeem his own soul by saving Scrooge's, and learns his own lesson in the process. Multitalented veteran actor Ken Clement gives a stellar performance as Marley in a production filled with lots of laughter, a dash of dread, and a heap of redemption. Because it's just not Christmas without delighting in dead rich guys being threatened with eternal hellfire.
