Charles Dickens, Tonight!

Dr. Elliot Engel and actor Jeffery West have combined their talents to produce a fine evening of fact combined with fantasy regarding Engel’s favorite subject, Charles Dickens. Engel is, himself, widely known as one of the most knowledgeable scholars on the subject, and this endeavor is the next in a very long line of works he has researched, written, and published on a wide span of English and American literary greats. The show is based on the more than 400 public readings Dickens gave of his own works across the two countries of England and America during the last half of the 19th century. Professor Engel has selected some of the very best of the readings that Dickens himself used while on his tour, including of course A Christmas Carol, along with selections from Oliver Twist, Nicholas Nickleby, and A Tale of Two Cities. Jeffery West, as Charles Dickens, performs these readings, and they are, as readings, spectacular.

“Exceedingly entertaining, and quite satisfying for any Dickens aficionado.” 
Alan R. Hall, Themestream
