Mark Cabus and His Solo ‘Carol’ Return to Nashville This Week

Mark Cabus 2Former Nashvillian Mark Cabus may now be an Atlanta resident but he visits the Music City from time to time. This week the veteran actor/director is bringing his critically-acclaimed and audience-beloved one-man stage version of A Christmas Carol with him.

Cabus plays 18 characters in his faithful adaptation of Charles Dickens’ classic tale of transformation and redemption at two separate venues – on Wednesday at the First Unitarian Universalist Church (1808 Woodmont Blvd.) followed by Thursday and Friday appearances at Christ Church Cathedral (900 Broadway).

All shows begin at 7:30 p.m. A free will offering will be taken following the First Unitarian Universalist Church presentation. For the Christ Church Cathedral performances online tickets ($13.50 for adults and $5 for students as opposed to $15 and $5 at the door) are available by clicking here.

This performance is appropriate for the whole family but suggested for children 12 and over.

Cabus was classically trained in New York and England. He has performed all over the world in film and television as well as Off-Broadway and in regional and children’s theater. His years in Nashville included work with such companies as Tennessee Repertory Theatre, Nashville Shakespeare Festival and his own Naked Stages troupe. In Atlanta, Cabus is known for his work with Georgia Shakespeare, Theatrical Outfit and Theatre Emory. His movie and TV credits range from the Warner Bros. blockbuster The Client and HBO’s Emmy-winning film Against the Wall to the CBS pilot A Father for Charlie.
