1998 | 'A Christmas Carol' at the Pacific Resident Theatre

Orson Bean, who starred in "The Facts of Life" and "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman," commenced his portrayal of Scrooge in "A Christmas Carol" with a double-take and a drum beat, wrote theater critic F. Kathleen Foley in 1998. "Bean's adaptation at Pacific Resident Theatre is cheerfully tongue-in-cheek, his Scrooge a comical curmudgeon whose muttered asides are more reminiscent of Popeye than Dickens," she said.From the Times archives
