Dickens in America

By James DeVita

December 16-18, 2007

This one man show looks at Charles Dickens as he makes the last stop on his final American tour. Witty dialogue combines with excerpts from Dickens’ greatest novels to vividly bring to life some of the most beloved characters in all of fiction. Dickens in America featured actor James Ridge, who used make-up, costumes, and physicality to truly become Dickens in what Vital Source Magazine describes as “a spellbinding, highly charismatic performance”. Both Ridge and playwright James DeVita are company members at Spring Green, Wisconsin’s American Players Theatre, where Dickens in America had previously been presented in a very successful run.
