Scrooge and Marley

88 minutes 2012

Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol gets a queer update in this local production: Scrooge is the self-loathing owner of a popular gay bar, and the three ghosts who visit him on Christmas Eve persuade him to share his wealth with AIDS treatment facilities and social outreach programs. For the most part this plays like a video recording of a spirited family reunion; the filmmaking isn't much but the players (including Chicago stage veterans Tim Kazurinsky, Dick O'Day, Becca Kaufman, and JoJo Baby) seem to be enjoying themselves and each other. Richard Knight Jr. and Peter Neville directed.
