Cody Nickell in JACOB MARLEY'S CHRISTMAS CAROL.
Cody Nickell in JACOB MARLEY’S CHRISTMAS CAROL.

Cody Nickell, in a true star turn, plays Charles Dickens, who in turn performs all the characters in a version of the classic Christmas story told from Marley’s point of view. Dickens was famous during his lifetime for his readings of his own works, where he did exactly what Nickell does here, doing all the roles in different voices. Nickell/Dickens portrays a wide range of Dickensian and Dickensian-style personages, including Marley, Scrooge, Cratchit, Tiny Tim, all three ghosts and a number of newly-created characters.
