“Musically high-spirited! Infectiously jolly!”
– The Washington Post
"Unabashedly fresh! Baron has transformed the Dickens seasonal tutorial about incivility, greed and the glory of redemption into a musical poem of hope."
– The Washington Flyer
"Dickens’s tale seems right at home in the newly renovated Ford’s Theatre, taking full advantage of the 19th-century architecture and charm of the historic playhouse. Ingenious set pieces and special effects heighten the magic of Dickens’s holiday tale."
– DC Theatre Scene
