"...This traditional allegory is filled with the elements of the human experience in all its bright humor and heavy darkness. Olney Theatre has a real gem in "A Christmas Carol." Morell states his intention with this show is "to let the pulse of this wonderful story unfold as Dickens originally envisioned." Well, in my opinion, the authenticity of the writer's original intent pierced through quite clearly. The performance I experienced was something as close to Charles Dickens himself smiling and whispering his own famous lines from the twilight, "I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year. I will live in the Past, the Present, and the Future. The Spirits of all Three shall strive within me.''"
