We went to "A Christmas Carol" in December. This is the 5th time we have seen this play and The Clarence Brown Theater did a fantastic job of modifying the play to enhance its story.

Clarence Brown Theater never fails to delight, whether it is a comedy, a musical, or a drama. This season they offer choices—a one man comedy show based on humorist David Sedaris and his thoughts on being hired as a Christmas elf inThe Santaland Diaries” or...More

Attended the "Christmas Carol" musical this year, as we did a similar production last year. I really think that last year's rendition was better, mainly because Scrooge this year was less convincing as an old man. Overall, the facility is in good shape, and there...More
