They've redone A Christmas Carol with Mr. Magoo, the Muppets, zombies, lesbians, drag queens — there's never been a shortage of remakes of the Charles Dickens chestnut about a Christmas curmudgeon who has a change of heart after a ghost-filled night. Add to that list the Speakeasy Society's Ebenezer: An Immersive Christmas Carol, which, for a twist, invites the audience to be in on the “Victorian-meets-modern” action, complete with live, period music and costumes. Set across six rooms of Chloe's, the speakeasy and private events space inside Golden Road Brewing, the theater company stages its production in three rotations, each lasting an hour. So you can pop in for an hour or stick around for all three and follow our mirthless miser as he travels through Christmas past, present and future. And this being an interactive show, you might be able to chat, play pool, maybe even share a beer with the cast of more than 20 actors playing characters from Ebenezer himself to the three spirits to that know-it-all-with-a-crutch, Tiny Tim. (Only a Scrooge would say that.) Chloe's at Golden Road Brewing, 5410 W. San Fernando Road, Atwater Village; Mon., Dec. 9, 8, 9 & 10 p.m.; $20. (213) 542-6039,

Mon., Dec. 9, 9 & 10 p.m., 2013
