Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Considered one of the most influential playwrights in nineteenth-century theatre, Dion Boucicault was at the height of his career when he adapted Charles Dickens’ Christmas novella for the stage. Known for his dramatic construction, Boucicault crafted an intriguing drama that captivated audiences. While it was not the first adaptation of the story that London saw, it was considered the most “memorable.” After its original production, it toured extensively throughout England and continued to be produced at the Gaiety Theatre, Haymarket Theatre, Theatre Royal, Nottingham, Sadler's Wells, among others. Its New York production at the Winter Garden, under Boucicault’s direction, launched the career of Joseph Jefferson. At the time of Boucicault’s death, “Dot” was mentioned as being among the playwright’s best plays. Published as part of Theatre Arts Press’ Dickens Dramatized Series of Plays.
