Union-Tribune theater critic James Hebert has released a smorgasbord of critiques for San Diego theater frequenters all dedicated to upcoming Christmas themed performances, including classics like A Christmas Carol, performed at Cygnet Theatre as a live radio performance, and nostalgic pieces like Dr. Suess' How The Grinch Stole Christmas performed at the Old Globe.

The holiday shopping season has officially launched, Christmas lights are already going up, and San Diego theater companies are turning to holiday themed fare to bring audiences in.
