“Philip Hays has directed a lean production that further increases emphasis on the words themselves and the actors speaking them. It’s a no-frills treatment that speaks the text plainly…with simple expressiveness.”

“More than in most productions, the overall effect is one of restrained reflection on the deeper meanings of Dickens’ timeless story.”

Everett Evans, Houston Chronicle

“Perhaps the most Dickensian of all theatrical treatments to be seen…this season, if not any season… The book comes alive on stage in marvelous new ways.”

“Classical’s production is at one with Dickens, respectful, observant, and utterly right.”

D.L. Groover, Houston Press
