    A Queer Carol

    This contemporary spin on the timeless holiday tale casts the famous characters in a new light. Ebenezer "Ben" Scrooge is a wealthy and prominent interior designer who spends his days decorating the Upper East Side homes of the rich and famous. Assisting Scrooge is none other than the put-upon young Bob Cratchit, who must contend with both his employer's abuses and the care of his partner Tim, an East Village office temp struggling with HIV. When Scrooge huffily dismisses a fundraiser collecting for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, it sets a chain of ghostly visitations into motion, including appearances from the very deadand very buff — Jake Marley as well as the Ghosts Of Christmas Past (who bears a striking resemblance to Marilyn Monroe), Present and Future. With Danny Pintauro, best known for his role as the irrepressible Jonathan Bower on ABC-TV's "Who's The Boss" with Judith Light and Tony Danza. In 1997, Mr. Pintauro made national headlines when he was "outed" as a gay man in the pages of the National Enquirer.
