    A Christmas Carol

    This ZACH Theatre adaptation of the Dickens classic, directed by Abe Reybold and starring the estimable Jaston Williams, is "a musical sleigh ride through rhythm and time, infusing the traditional Victorian story with a score that spans all genres and eras." It's riotously redolent of the ghosts of Motown past, but of course you know the basic Ebenezer of this thing: crotchety, cratchity, creepy, and (ultimately) heartwarming. And, what's that? You think there's an awful lot of Dickens going on in town lately? Our Robert Faires tells you why.
    Through Dec. 30. Wed.-Fri., 7:30pm; Sat., 2:30 & 7:30pm; Sun., 2:30pm. $25 and up.

    Better Mr. Burns

    Yes, this is that Anne Washburn-scripted, The Simpsons-go-postapocalypse brilliance that delighted audiences at St. Ed's a few years ago, now presented by a cadre of UT theatre students under the direction of Khristián Méndez Aguirre to "address the impact of environmental waste and abusive rehearsal practices to address a significant blind spot in contemporary American theatre: the intersection of environmental and social justice." And we've got a report on that right here.
