About the Show

The Logistics:

Humbug, by John Wooten, will be performing at Stage 773 (1225 W. Belmont) on Friday nights during the holiday season between November 30th and December 28th.

The Synopsis:

More than a twist on the classic tale, this retelling of the traditional favorite A Christmas Carol is a gender-bent modernization.  Droll work-a-holic Eleanor Scrooge is a ruthlessly ambitious Wall Street executive who tempers her yuletide surliness with an insatiable appetite for power. She’s hunkered down in her office on a snowy Christmas Eve, determined to finish a corporate-takeover proposal until three unexpected “advisors” provide her with a new appreciation for the “spirit” of season.  A plucky, colorful ensemble helps her along on her holiday journey.  Humbug is an upbeat and moving adaptation that brings a contemporary flair to Dickens’ Christmas classic.
