**** Highly Recommended **** “Twist Your Dickens” is an absolute hoot! While Larry Yando is taking himself way too seriously as Ebenezer Scrooge in the Goodman Theatre’s traditional production of “The Christmas Carol” in the Albert Theatre, Second City has taken over the Owen with “Twist Your Dickens” for a third season with a new cast, new director, and new sketches. You’ll laugh your head off at “Twist Your Dickens”. 4 BIG Spotlights.
