Ive read this morning that Charles Dickens Christmas Carol comes to Greece (for the first time ever) in a few weeks!! :gelf:
And what I liked most is that Ebenizer Scrooge is going to be JEREMY IRONS !!! Can you believe that?? :eek:
Dickens's classic ghost story is here for only 2 theater performances,15 & 16 December 2009 and I think its gonna be a great experience!! (I also love Jeremy Irons :smiling angel:)
Isn't wonderful ? :dance:
Olga, that is FANTASTIC NEWS!
Jeremy Irons is a brilliant actor and I'm jealous that you'll see him perform.
You'll have to tell us all about it, of course!
Well, the only thing that worries me is the distance... I'll have to travel 8 hours in order to get to Athens Concert Hall, as everything that has to do with Christmas shows, happen only in the capital of Greece...

I saw a version of A Christmas Carol off-broadway (I live within 15 minutes of New York City, so I get in rather often) I was a one man performance by Patrick Stewart (Captain Picard of Star Trek) where he played every character in the production. I was really taken back by it all, I didn't think I was going to be able to follow one man playing some many rolls but he was FANTASTIC.
He may be the best Ebenezer Scrooge I have seen on TV or the Stage. ( he also was in a movie version of A Christmas Carol which was excellent as well )
Hello Fezziwig!! It will be one man show here, too... Ive never seen anything like that, so Im very curious to see Jeremy Irons performing Scrooge and all others. Ive read that hes gonna be the narrator too.. :elf3:

Unfortunately, I have not seen him on stage, but I bet he must be great..
Wow, I'm not sure I would travel 8 hours to see a show. Have a great time and let us know how it went!
