**** Highly Recommended **** “Twist Your Dickens” is an absolute hoot! At the same time as Larry Yando is wowing audiences 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”. Even though it’s the second time around, I still laughed ‘til my cheeks hurt! I give “Twist Your Dickens” 4 BIG Spotlights.
