Greed Is Good

If A Christmas Carol has taught us anything it’s that being rich and greedy certainly has its merits. How else can one rule over one’s subordinates with an iron fist while being assured visits from voyeuristic, clairvoyant, time traveling specters who wear enough chains to make Mr. T blush? All Ebenezer Scrooge had to do was get insanely rich and crotchety and, voilà: Three different spirits took his hand on Christmas Eve and whisked him away to a peep show of alternate realities.

If you’re not of the degenerate ilk, Charles Dickens’ family-friendly masterpiece also teaches the joys of redemption, loving, giving, and caring in high-energy musical form. Catch it when A Christmas Carol – in a production by the local group Performance Project, with Daniel Bonnet playing everybody’s favorite meany -- invades the Broward Center for the Performing Arts (201 SW Fifth Ave. Fort Lauderdale) Thursday through Sunday. Tickets cost $16.50. Visit www.browardcenter.org, or call 954-462-0222.
