Short review: A Christmas Carol

Rated 3.0

B Street Theatre indulges us all in our collective right to “Bah! Humbug!” The show is part of B Street’s Family Series, and caters to younger audiences with ample fourth-wall busting asides. This play offers an impressive number of quick changes and preposterous accents from a cast of five who play the dozens of characters that make up this Christmas tale—and a few new ones, to boot. Sat 4pm & 8pm, Sun 1pm & 4pm, Mon 2pm, Wed 6:30pm, Thu 12/27, 6:30pm. Through 12/27; $18-$23; B Street Theatre, 2700 Capitol Ave., (916) 443-5300;
