Classic Menken 11 Oct. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Menken's A Christmas Carol is an excellent interpretation of the classic Dicken's novel. It has the well written if somewhat familiar Menken sound and some clever lyrics by Lynn Ahrens. A soundsgood recording of a feelgood classic.

An adaptation that soars like the original 12 Nov. 2002
By Nicholas M. Martorelli - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Mr. Scrooge and his three Christmas spirits are icons of popular culture, for everyone knows the story of "A Christmas Carol." In this wonderful musical, however, the story is retold and reimagined through an hour and a half of enjoyable music. I stumbled upon this CD accidentally in my local library, and it was a hunt to find it after that. Telling the majority of the story through song, the CD captures the essence and spirit of Dickens's classic, while introducing modern and original touches as well. The cast is wonderful, and they have a strong vocal sound. I certainly recommend this CD to anyone.

A Great Christmas Carol- For the KIDS 7 Feb. 2002
By loesser - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This Christmas Carol knows how to please its audience, which are mostly kids. It also knows how to fill a giant stage with spectacular production numbers. Dickens may turn over in his grave as his story is sweetened and shortened. But he's used to that after "Oliver". I'll stop being a Scrooge and admit that it is joyous with an excellent score by Menken and Ahrens.

An amazing Christmas treat long overlooked 30 Nov. 2000
By Dean Backus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Boy, are you in for a treat. Long overlooked, this show contains some of Menken's most surprising music in terms of breadth and sweep--it's as sweet as pieces of "Beauty and the Beast" and "The Little Mermaid" in spots, but in others it rivals the dark majesty of "The Hunchback of Notre Dame." In addition to the lovely ballads such as "There's a Place Called Home," the raise-the-roof joy of "Mr. Fezziwig's Annual Christmas Ball" (so lively it's almost like being there) and the euphoric "Abundance, Charity, Goodwill Towards Men" (with a deliriously wonderful tap-dance number), there are pitch-black pieces such as "Dancing On Your Grave" that startle with their ferocity and grimness. (Ahrens' lyrics are especially impressive here.) Combine all this musicality with some ominous,frightening effects (the quiet whoooosh of ghosts in the wind, the ominous chime of the clock) and you've got a Christmas album like no other. OK, it's a hair overstuffed, and the orchestrations do get a trifle bombastic, but isn't it nice to have a holiday present this generous? Highly recommended, especially for performance.

Hurry! Get this now!!! 10 Dec. 2001
By Matty - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This version of A CHRISTMAS CAROL is the BEST ever!!! The CD is the full show (I'm guessing)--the twist of this show is that it is all sung (not EVERY word of course, but the majority). I used to HATE all sung musicals- but a couple of years ago I bought this and fell in love. Since then I've been obsessed with EVITA and other "all-sung" shows. You will love this!!!!! The songs, lyrics, music are all as true to the original story as any other. Some of the most popular Scrooge speeches like "Are there no work houses..." and the ones to Cratchit are in here with a wonderful song usually following. I promise you won't be disappointed!!!!
