Inspecting Carol at Vermont Stage was shameless fun.
Getting to play a really, really bad actor is one of those treats any actor relishes, and I had a high old time with it. High point: imagine me playing Dickens’ Tiny Tim while channeling Richard III, add a bad wig and — well, you get the idea. The plot loosely sets Gogol’s The Inspector General in a struggling regional theater mounting a horribly threadbare production of A Christmas Carol. The audience laughed themselves silly at this warped valentine to the acting profession, and we performers had just as good a time. For reviews and a picture, please click here.
