  1. How embarrassing for this area. The winner is not theater. Not even a musical. And certainly not good. It’s simply a vanity project for the star and something the population attends out of shear desperation for some type of holiday entertainment.

  2. Whatever happened to the old adage “If you can’t say something good about someone, something, don’t say nothing at all”???????????

  3. A Christmas Carol has always been exceptionally good, but what makes this year so special is that it was the first time Ira David Wood IV played the part of Scrooge and he was outstanding. He certainly deserved the standing ovation he received from all the audiences. Anonymous from 2/3/11. 4:19 p.m. should put his money where his mouth is and see if he could last out eleven performances, plus months of rehearsals. The entire cast works hard to put on a great performance; Ira David Wood 111 has brought a great show to the Triangle area for 30 years and his son, Ira David Wood IV stepped in with short notice to perform in his father’s place. His performance was perfection. No one in the Triangle sees it year after year out of desperation – the Triangle has much to offer everyone, so there is no need for desperation.
