A Broadway Christmas Carol at MetroStage

“Deck the halls with lots of showtunes,” Donna Migliaccio sings in the opening number of A Broadway Christmas Carol. And that, she does. By the end of the show, the halls are overstuffed with showtune snippets — 40 or so in all. They’re presented in a hurried, altered, name-that-tune kind-of-way, a gaudy effect that distracts from the story — but then if you must deliberate on the finer points of Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol, you really need to get out more often. Closes Sunday, Dec. 19. MetroStage, 1201 North Royal St., Alexandria. Tickets are $45 to $50. Call 800-494-8497 or visit metrostage.org.
