Chicago Reader - Somewhat Recommended

"...Scrooge substitute SQuja is visited by three visions who help him become the good, warlike Klingon he's avoided being his entire life. Can he change his Romulan ways and find his place in battle? With full headpieces and long fight scenes, this production takes the Klingon way seriously-to its detriment. While it may please Star Trek fanatics, it isn't for those of us who'd rather laugh at a Klingon than grunt with him."

"...The story of A Christmas Carol is universal, its message of error and redemption echoed in the folklore of every tribe the world over, but the universe got substantially bigger when Commedia Beauregard, a theater company specializing in translated drama, proposed not only adapting Dickens' immortal holiday fable to the alien culture referenced in the Star Trek science-fiction series, but performing it entirely in the artificial language springing from the popularity of the pop mythology engendered thereby."
