Being Scrooge

By BILL RODRIGUEZ  |  December 2, 2009

"It's a bit of a risk in that there are fewer performances," he replied. "We had to yield to the economy rather drastically. But my first impression is that it honors the show more. Doing two companies, and each company doing, gosh, 12 performances a week, it just became this huge Christmas machine. I really feel that having one company and doing 10 performances a week really features the story more, it makes it special."

So, with all this hard-won familiarity with the grinchiest Christmas grinch in English literature, what has Tim Crowe most enjoyed about playing the part?

He says that he very much likes its "gift aspect," that people come to Trinity expecting and appreciating its moral.

"It's a life-changing message that we have to be constantly reminded of," he says. "I think that there is a spiritual message contained in this that I feel honored to be able to, hopefully, deliver."
