During Christmas, four ghosts intervene in the life of an odious, greedy, hard-hearted, miser to save him from eternal damnation.

I love A Christmas Carol and I thought I'd love a multi-voice performance, but this "sonic theater" was awful. The sound effects overwhelm the narration; the voices often sound like they belong in some space adventure full of robots; the main narrators change almost in mid-sentence without rhyme or reason. I persevered, but the constantly howling wind effects almost did me in. It was all just very irritating and a terrible thing to do to a great story.
