Once again, the Clarence Brown Theater has put on a fantastic performance with A Christmas Carol. Great performers, costumes and set. Honestly, just a top notch production. If you haven't been to the Clarence Brown Theater, you're missing out.

This play was amazing as usual. The music and the singers were awesome and the actors were perfect. The timing of the play was just right, not too long. The theater offers drinks and snacks during intermission.
