A Christmas Carol 'a captivating show for all'
Date Posted: 08/12/10
A Christmas Carol is the perfect festive show for all the family, according to one reviewer, who praised a recent performance at Salford's The Lowry.
Ben East, writing for TheStage.co.uk, said that every time this production is performed in front of those booking Manchester hotels it has added significance, as this is the city in which Charles Dickens conceived the novel in 1843.
"David Holman's fine adaption retains much of the social commentary that concerned Dickens when he saw at first hand the squalor of the Industrial Revolution, but it is the inventive staging which deserves much of the praise," he added.
Mr East went on to say that A Christmas Carol is a "captivating show for all ages" as it runs with the original story, rather than "dumbing it down" for today's generation.
It is currently playing at The Lowry until Saturday January 8th, alongside Peter Pan: The Musical Adventure, which runs at the venue until Saturday January 1st.
