LA Screening of SCROOGE & MARLEY
Sunday Nov 25, 2012 1:00pm-4:00pm in Los Angeles
Hey Guys,

My little Christmas movie SCROOGE & MARLEY will be playing in LA Nov 21st - 27th. It's a really fun modern day variation of A Christmas Carol, with yours truly playing Bob Cratchit.

I hope you can join Ronnie Kroell, David Pevsner, and myself for the 1PM screening on Sunday the 25th.

The film is narrated by Judith Light, and also stars Bruce Vilanch, Rusty Schwimmer, Megan Cavanagh, and SNL's Tim Kazurinsky.

I know it's in Pasadena and I know it's Thanksgiving week, but we promise it will be well worth a trip to [*shudders*] THE VALLEY and a sweet little kick off to the Holiday Season.

So load up your pack mules, don yer gay apparel, and meet me in Pasadena Sunday the 25th at 1. I'd love to see your smiling faces there.

xo David
