In the immortal words of Scrooge, “A merry Christmas to every-body! A happy new year to all the world! Whoop!”
What better time to post this sketch of the wonderful Welsh actor Rhys Ifans as one of Charles Dickens’ most memorable characters in the Old Vic production of A CHRISTMAS CAROL in London. It’s the ultimate redemption story, the cold-hearted miser who despises the festive season, until the Christmas Spirits fill him with love and joy.
We saw the excellent production a couple of weeks ago and Rhys signed this drawing for me yesterday at the stage door.
