Was delighted to be in the audience for yesterday’s “A Christmas Carol: Radio Play” at the Jerome L. Greene Space in Lower Manhattan.
A perfect way to get in the holiday spirit, with F. Murray Abraham as Scrooge and the on-air talent from WNYC and WQXR as the ensemble. Directed and adapted by Nyack’s Elliott Forrest, this was the second year that listeners have been treated to what I hope continues to be an annual rite. Abraham was in wonderful voice, as you can hear, and had a different presence than last year’s equally wonderful Scrooge, David Hyde Pierce.
This weekend, I’ll be taking in Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival’s readers-theater version of “A Christmas Carol.” Can’t get enough of Dickens this time of year.
