This was the most awful prodcution I have ever seen, and for $20 a ticket, what a rip off. Unless you drink the Glen Beck kool-aid, an objective person woud suggest his stick to his radio show. The audio was awful. About 20 minutes into the production he must have bumped his microphone,, and the sound became muffled. In order to compensate, the audio people turned up his microphone so we heard every movement of his shirt brushing against the microphone. Very annoying. The singing was mediocre. The Orchestra was the one shinning star. They were amazing. This production gave my wife and I a chance to catch up on our sleep. Glen, when you start sweating through your shirt, and you go off stage, CHANGE YOUR SHIRT!!!!!!

Great show. It was a wonderful beginning to the week before Christmas. Glenn did an awesome job bringing the message and the emotions from the book across. A great way to spend an evening to spend with my mom.

A really good personal story that makes one do some introspection about what is important in your life and how you should face your challenges in life
I enjoyed it with my family without apologies
- no profanity, no explicit sex scenes, no excessive bloody violence (i.e. not the typical Hollywood)
Very different to Glenn's usual humor and commentary.
Will definitely be buying the DVD.

The Christmas Sweater Live was an emotional modern-day presentation of "A Christmas Carol," blending some of the real-life experiences of Glenn Beck with a tale of gratitude and redemption. I have read that some find this presentation to be cliched and predictable, and while some of this is true, I believe some things are worth repeating- this story of a 12 year old boys 'disappointing' Christmas resonates with anyone who has struggled, loved, and had their heart broken. It reinforces my belief that every day you can 'begin again,' no matter how the past was, and that your actions and thoughts color your world to a large degree.
