A Christmas Carol

Posted: December 24, 2008 in Family and Friends

Jody and I have tried not to go overboard at Christmas over the years, though our girls have definitely never done without. This year, as a poor grad student, we’re barely even on the boat, so no worries about falling overboard.

But we decided to blow a hundred bucks for a good Christmas memory today.

In spite of the forecasted ugly, rainy weather, we’re getting out in the Christmas Eve traffic for a performance of “A Christmas Carol” at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood this afternoon. We hear that the theatre itself is amazing, but I’m looking forward especially to seeing the stars – Christopher Lloyd, John Goodman, and Jane Leeves (Daphne, from “Frasier”).

You can read about the performance HERE. I learned this is Lloyd’s first time as Scrooge, and I hope all the sentiments that he was meant for that role are taken as compliments. šŸ™‚

Jane Seymour and Gene Wilder were on the original advertisement for the show…

but Seymour ended up sick and had to cancel, and the producers nixed the Wilder special effects scene. But seeing the three remaining stars on stage promises to be a cool Christmas Eve treat.
