All in all, “A Twisted Christmas Carol” succeeds like cowboys, cactus, humidity and football in Texas because of, not despite, its extremely funny and intelligent writing.

The chemistry between the actors, talented eye of the director and raw and naked language of the playwright create an inspiring, illuminating and enlightening evening of exhilaration and exclamation of an highly unusual American portrait.

I did not find this play close to being as charming and comedic as all of Olson's plays that I have seen in the past. However I must say that all of the actors helped to keep it moving and funny throughout.

Olson adds a modern satiric touch, Texas twang, and more adult sensibilities to Dickens’ classic story, filling it with double entendres, goofy sidekicks and contemporary references, with director Doug Engalla adding uptempo energy.
