This Holiday season, join us at the ESQUIRE THEATRE for a darkly comic and surreal 1988 contemporization of Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol: SCROOGED!
Bill Murray is back among the ghosts. Only this time, it's three against one.
This effects-heavy Bill Murray holiday vehicle from 1988 sees the former SNL funnyman assuming the role of television executive Frank Cross, the meanest and most depraved man on earth.
Francis Xavier Cross is a cynical, mean spirited television executive, he treats his loyal assistant with contempt. He just sacked a member of staff on Christmas Eve for simply disagreeing with him, and he's alienated himself from his brother who still insists on inviting Frank to Christmas dinner despite him refusing to go every year. However, Frank is forced to learn the true meaning of Christmas when he's visited by three ghosts.
