Spending Time with a Famous Couple

A comforting sense of intimacy fills the small room below Central Presbyterian Church. Upstairs, people will come to affirm what they believe.  Downstairs, Circle Theatre Artistic Director Doug Marr keeps believing that people will be interested in what he offers: good theatre performed with intelligence and polish.

Marley Unchained

You might think that a theatre piece called Jacob Marley’s Christmas Carol would be some kind of a send-up of the Dickens classic. Or, if you’re in a humbug frame of mind, you might conclude that such a title too much implies the regularly unwrapped holiday package and you’d prefer to remain within your rooms, warming feet by the fire, sipping yourself into oblivion with thoroughly-laced hot toddies.

Indeed, my...
