Albert Finney shines as the title character in this musical version of Charles Dickens' timeless tale of Ebenezer Scrooge, a lonely miser who is visited on Christmas Eve by three spirits who teach him lessons of love and giving. Fun choreography, rich set design, memorable songs, and a distinguished supporting cast (led by Sir Alec Guinness as Jacob Marley's ghost) lend considerable clout to this perennial favorite.
