Matthew Warchus’ smash-hit production of Charles Dickens’ timeless festive classic A Christmas Carol will return to the Old Vic Theatre for a second festive season. Casting is to be announced.
While the fifth star or mouse is often supposed by tradition to belong only to life-changing innovation, in awarding it now I must make it clear that for me the fifth one is often more fitly represented by a heart. I loved the production. It will be a delight to Dickensians everywhere, and a means of conversion to others. Bravo.
