This Tuesday, December 11th, please join us for our last reading of 2012 with “Scrooged” by Mitch Glazer & Michael O’Donoghue.
A darkly comic and surreal contemporization of Charles Dickens’s “A Christmas Carol”, this effects-heavy Bill Murray holiday vehicle from 1988 sees the former SNL funnyman assuming the role of television executive Frank Cross, the meanest and most depraved man on earth. Cross will stoop to unheard of levels to increase his network’s ratings. Cross’s life is turned upside down with visits from three ghosts, and along the way, the spirits carry Frank to scenes from his past, present, and future (per Scrooge) and impart a glimpse of how he became so thoroughly rotten.
