EVENT DETAILS
Thumbnail for - Twist Your Dickens

If any local theater company understands that there’s demand in Portland for nontraditional Christmas shows, it’s Portland Center Stage: this is the fifth consecutive year the company is presenting David Sedaris’s caustic The Santaland Diaries. “The thing just keeps going,” says PCS artistic director Chris Coleman. “Maybe Portlanders want something sideways and snarky at Christmas.” Coleman tests that hypothesis further this holiday season by bringing famed improv group Second City’s rendition of A Christmas Carol to PCS’s main stage. Each performance of Twist Your Dickens is roughly 30 percent improvisation and features revolving local guests—but Coleman claims he isn’t nervous. “I think it’ll be fun,” he says, “but I’m sure there will be a fair amount of hysteria.”

 

We review the show from the viewpoints of both Tiny Tim and Scrooge.
