Review On A Christmas Carol

Writer, Non-Registered Critics

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.

Steve is a 5-tool writer (plays, screenplays, novels, poetry, journalism) who has had 11 books published, 10 plays produced, and has written for the New York Times “Arts & Leisure”, Village Voice, New Republic, and many others. He is one of the few people on the planet who can lay claim to spending time with Lee Strasberg, Stella Adler, Sandy Meisner, Allen Ginsberg, Andy Warhol, and Rubin “Hurricane” Carter, as well as so many other extraordinary people who refused to color inside the lines. He is always on the lookout for the original and the incisive.
