Hi, folks. Ebenezer Scrooge here, with my guest this evening, Grinch, the noted critic who loves to hate Christmas shows. I hope this finds you well, Grinch, despite the pervasive holiday cheer.
Hi, Scrooge. And a very bah humbug to you, too. What's on the agenda for tonight's critical roundup?
ES: The new holiday show at the Walnut Independence Studio on 3, Plaid Tidings. Thoughts?
G: Thoughts? Are you kidding? What's to think about a show this inane? Its premise is that a singing group called the Plaids, which has been boring the angels to death in heaven since 1964 when the four guys were killed in a car crash, return to Earth for one night to put on a Christmas show.
