A few weeks ago, I wrote an article in which I said I couldn’t bring myself to see the press night of Dallas Theater Center’s “A Christmas Carol,” which fell several days before Thanksgiving, because until I had pumpkin pie and cranberries and Macy’s dominating the traffic along Broadway, it was impossible for me to get into the Christmas spirit. Tropical temperatures in recent weeks haven’t helped.
But it’s Dec. 21. The low today will be well below freezing. The Christmas decorations are up at the house and my sequined Santa’s cap is out of the moth balls. (I take “Don we now our gay apparel” seriously.) So tonight’s the night: I’m goin’ to see “A Christmas Carol” at the Kalita Humphreys at 7:30 p.m. tonight. I hope to see you there. Come up and say hi if you see me; I promise not to say “Humbug.”
