“A Christmas Carol”… or maybe I’ll go with “Scrooge’s Big Night”…

With all the holiday performances happening right now, this article about the one and only manuscript that Charles Dickens left behind for “A Christmas Carol” is really cool! Looking over the Shoulder of the Creator of “A Christmas Carol”

  1. the manuscript
    Hey Tony – if you like it – check out the whole manuscript (both text and scanned images of the original hand-written pages on Project Gutenberg if you download the link below it gives you the whole manuscript.

    I love seeing all the corrections and crossed out bits on the original page – the writing is so perfect its a good reminder that the finished product doesn’t come out clean and beautiful.
    Looking forward to seeing your show this weekend.

      It’s great, isn’t it! Thanks for the link!
      You’re right, I love seeing this “masterpiece”, this thing that has such a place in history, and all the changes and rewrites and tweaks!
