Joy to all mankind? Bah! Humbug! Spend an evening in the company of a mean, tight-fisted, squeezing, grasping, clutching old miser. Watch horrified as Ebenezer Scrooge is haunted by four creepy ghosts each one more terrifying than the last. In their inimitable style, the team that brought you Great Expectations will now celebrate the holiday season with a mesmerizing one man performance of Charles Dickens’ timeless, transformative story.

Recommended for adults of all ages and brave children ages 8+.

Whether that appeals to one’s imagination in this media-saturated world is very much an individual decision. I found the show moving and heartfelt, but I also didn’t think that the stage environment at the Wallis’s Lovelace Studio did it any favors — the high ceiling and the vast emptiness surrounding Mynne made it more difficult to focus on the quiet emotions and the incremental shifts in his performance.

David Mynne’s one-man show of Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations knocked me off my feet last year. Sadly, his solo rendering of A Christmas Carol, also by Dickens, merely shoved me a little. This was not the fault of Mynne himself, who is a consummate performer and thoroughly entertaining.

Using his flexible voice, masterful body control and a variety of facial expressions, Mynne is able to bring Dickens’s world to life and make us believe in Scrooge’s conversion from grasping old miser to generous, warm-hearted human being.
