The Carols of Christmas

By BILL RODRIGUEZ  |  December 8, 2009

Beckmann is the best actor of the bunch, and she creates a whimsical and interesting incidental character who comes in at the beginning and end. Boyce, as another unnamed character, is caroling at the opening when she joins him dressed as an elf. He is annoyed, saying he specified dressing as a Dickensian character. She mishears him and returns as a character out of Philip K. Dick. A cute sight gag follows.

Oh, the Christmas carols. They are the best part of the evening, since Beckmann and Boyce have angelically beautiful voices, and the other two are also good. As well as a pre-show 10-minute serenade, the play itself finds occasions for caroling. Pleasant. Even carelessly wrapped gifts are appreciated if sincerely given.
