Summary
As every fan knows, one of the great joys of encountering a new version, or of catchin up with an old one, comes with the discovery of a fresh approach to making a familiar thematic point or the recognition of a totally original idea that will not be found elsewhere. In this regard, Stingiest man does not disappoint. While the production does not skimp on the warmth, charm and sheer joy found in Dickens's original text, neither does it skimp on the serious social criticism that will also be found there
