A modern-day take on Dicken's classic, A Christmas Carol. To Dolores who runs D's Pub, Christmas is a scam, and charity is for suckers. When her niece Anita faces eviction, Dolores turns her away into the cold. Can three sassy spirits turn this female Scrooge from bad to good? Celebrating Latinx culture and modern music, this is an exciting and joyous new Christmas Carol (Cuento) for today.
Presented by 16th Street Theater

"...And though the show is charming, it lacks the emotional payoff at the end, when Scrooge/Dolores discovers the true spirit of Christmas. Thanks to the National New Play Network the show is more or less simultaneously being premiered at two other U.S. theaters this season (in Cleveland, and Portland, OR), and it's hard not to wonder about how this great material is faring in other, less unlucky, productions."
