New Repertory Theatre, in collaboration with the Arsenal Center for the Arts and Watertown Children’s Theatre, revives its popular adaptation of Dickens’ classic holiday story, which has all the trimmings of a lavish Victorian Christmas. The production offers a feast for the senses, ranging from a pre-show caroling concert to luxurious period costumes, from singing and dancing – the performers accompany themselves on over a dozen different instruments – to ghosts that fly through the air and evaporate into the London fog. For audience members of all ages, Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, now in its third year, is the perfect holiday celebration.

“All wonderful… but what really lingers here is the wholeness of Lombardo’s vision: He treats the familiar story with respect but makes it unmistakably his own.”
