Scrooge in Love! is a delightful and charismatic musical!
42nd Street Moon, who generally presents little known Broadway musicals of the past, is now presenting a brand new, charming musical for the holiday season. Scrooge in Love! is a delightful and charismatic musical about everyone’s favorite yuletide grumbler, Ebenezer Scrooge. Larry Grossman, the composer of Snoopy! and Minnie’s Boys, has written a most enjoyable score that sometimes reminds me of Richard Rodgers. There are sparkling lyrics by Kellen Blair and an entrancing book by Duane Poole. The songs are nice hummable tunes. Duane Poole captures the magic of the Dickens story while finding effective ways of filling it out. The incomparable Jason Graae brilliantly stars as the sourpuss Scrooge.
