Fringe veterans Peter Carlone and Chris Wilson better known as the duo Peter n’ Chris present their own spin on Scrooge in their new Christmas spoof A Peter n’ Chris-tmas Carol, showing at the Metro Studio, Dec. 16.
As the story goes, a grumpy Chris is visited on the night before Christmas but wastes most of his time with the first Ghost. Now, he must decide which of the two other ghosts he wants to meet before sunrise in order to change his ways.
A Peter n’ Chris-tmas Carol is everything you love about A Christmas Carol, performed the only way Peter n’ Chris can; fast, hilarious and smart.
