Xpress Scrooged a few facts

Thanks for the beautiful cover photo and the article about Montford Park Players' production of A Christmas Carol ["An Old Tale with a Heightened Malevolence," Dec. 7 Xpress]. I wish to advise you of an error in the text.

Please note that Paul G. Clarke has never played the role of Scrooge in any of MPP's productions of Carol that I know of. Beginning in 2002, I performed this role for the following nine seasons. This year I was cast as the ghost of Jacob Marley, a role that has always appealed to me. Interestingly enough, it was Peter Brezny who played Marley to my debut as Scrooge in 2002. Peter has played one part or another in Carol for about 30 of the 35 years that the company has produced this show. (Also, note that Paul Clarke is, indeed, portraying Bob Cratchit in this production.)

— Mike Vaniman (aka Jacob Marley)
