A Very Nosedive Christmas Carol

Nosedive Productions Presents

A Very Nosedive
Christmas Carol

A play adapted from Charles Dickens’ story by James Comtois
Directed by Pete Boisvert

The Horse Trade Red Room, 85 East 4th Street
December 6-8, 13-15, Thursday through Saturday, 11 p.m.

The Holiday Classic. Revamped for Cynics.

"An outstanding production, as measured on the Laugh Till You Cry index. Definitely worth a 10."

"Patrick Shearer's portrayal of Scrooge is truly the best performance I have seen on off-off Broadway all year."

Due to both popular demand and the exorbitant amount of fun the company had staging it in years past, Nosedive Productions is re-helming their version of A Christmas Carol at a new venue and a new time.

Writer James Comtois and director Pete Boisvert's version of the Dickensian classic opens on the ghost of Jacob Marley lamenting his fate at having to teach Scrooge the same lesson, year after year, and of having to tell the same story to audiences year after year. The spirits haunting Scrooge have done this countless times, every Christmas, over and over again — and they’re tired. So, the ghosts may be a little late this year. Hey, they have auditions to go to.

A Very Nosedive Christmas Carol will be performed at the Horse Trade Red Room, (85 East 4th Street at 2nd Ave.) December 6-8 & 13-15 (Thursday through Saturday). All shows are at 11 p.m., tickets are $18 for adults, $12 for children. 6 train to Astor Place; L train to 1st Avenue; or F, V train to 2nd Avenue Stations. For tickets call 212-352-3101 or visit

Featuring Anna Kull and Gyda Arber. Conceived by the Blood Brothers, directed by myself and shot and edited by Ben VandenBoom.

Nosedive Productions ~ 7 years, 14 plays

A new photoshop collage I put together for the fundraising mailing Nosedive is sending out shortly.

Badly in need of a new computer. Photoshop barely works on my home machine at this point; had to do most of this in my "spare time" at work.
