A Christmas Carol

Please note: This event has already occurred.
The formidable Ed Gero as Scrooge is reason enough to see this Dickens classic at Ford's Theatre. The most recent of Gero's 75-plus performances at the Shakespeare Theatre Company was as the title character in "Henry IV, Parts 1 & 2" this past spring. With Gero as painter Mark Rothko, John Logan's two-character drama "Red" set box-office marks at Arena Stage in 2012. This is Gero's sixth season as Scrooge. -- Nelson Pressley
