A Christmas Carol

Home > Broadway Musicals DVD > Great Musical Productions

Kelsey Grammer (Actor) - A Christmas Carol The Musical - Broadway Musicals DVD - A musical setting for Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol is a natural, and this holiday TV-movie (based on the Broadway version) generously crams music into its quick spin through the venerable story. Kelsey Grammer uses his musical pipes (and some of his master thespian style of acting) as Ebenezer Scrooge, the man whose miserliness needs no introduction here. There's some experienced musical-comedy talent in the cast, from small roles to large, with expert stuff from Jesse L. Martin (who was in Rent, the Broadway musical, before he joined the Law and Order team) as the ghost of Christmas Present and Jane Krakowski as the ghost of Christmas Past. Jason Alexander, another TV person with a background in stage musicals, does deftly as the chain-rattling Jacob Marley's ghost (and his number is one of the most tuneful of the mixed bag of songs). Alan Menken, the veteran tunesmith of Beauty and the Beast fame, contributes the music, with lyrics by Lynn Ahrens (Ragtime); the bigger numbers are spirited but a little rote. (The Styne-Merrill songs from a wackier version of the story, Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol, are a more memorable bunch.) This version moves so quickly across the main points of the story that Scrooge's redemption feels a tad rushed, but maybe the songs are supposed to be the point. Still, the razzle-berry dressing is missed. Kelsey Grammer (Frasier) brings Ebenezer Scrooge to life in this musical adaptation of Charles Dickens' classic tale. During a Christmas Eve dream that evolves into nightmarish proportions, embittered and miserly Scrooge is visited by three Christmas ghosts: Past Present and Future, who show him the life he has lived and the future consequences of that life. This is probably our favorite Christmas tradition. This version of the classic tale is stirring and gorgeous on the eyes and ears. I highly recommend it. This version of 'A Christmas Carol' will grow on you. I have to agree with one other reviewer, the music is the best part of this movie. As for Jason Alexander as Marley: he has one of the best musical numbers in the movie. Link-by-Link is absolutely delightful. I also agree with the thoughts on Kelsey Grammer, that he did a great job as Scrooge. 5 stars because it is a great musical, great characters and Kelsey Grammer makes a great Stooge, can't go wrong with this one.
