How could you possibly improve A Christmas Carol, Charles Dickens’ holiday parable on the virtues of charity, kindness and humility, and the redemption found therein? With muppets, of course!
Michael Caine stars as Ebeneezer Scrooge, a man who discarded his humanity decades ago: he entertains himself by being cruel to men and muppets alike, and revelling in his own miserableness. On Christmas Eve, he receives a warning from his late business partners in spectral form: repent his wickedness, or face eternal toil. To help him consider his options, three ghosts will visit him over the course of the evening. Can Scrooge be redeemed? Should he? Does he even want to? A beloved Christmas classic in the three decades since its release, THE MUPPET CHRISTMAS CAROL is the perfect holiday movie to see at the Revue: join us December 17 and see Michael Caine give the most serious performance of his life surrounded by your favourites from Jim Henson’s Creature Shop! –CRYSTAL MADORE
