. . . Seen the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future

Sunday, November 28, 2004; Page C02

. . . seen the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future in a theater that may have a few ghosts of its own. It's a venerable Washington tradition to see "A Christmas Carol" at Ford's Theatre. But this year's offering brings a bit of Christmas Future to the capital region with a new rendition of the holiday classic. The adaptation chosen this season brings together the classic Dickens story with a hint of social criticism, a testament to the theater's artistic renewal pushed by the new producing director.

Relive your holidays past, like Scrooge here from last year's show, with a trip to Ford's Theatre to see the quintessential classic "A Christmas Carol." (Stan Barouh -- Ford's Theatre)
