The New York Times describes Jonathan Kruk as having “a way with the spoken word, the telling gesture, the sprinkling of humor, and the appropriate costume for a smorgasbord of stories.”

The Times goes on to say “…Master Storyteller, Jonathan Kruk is renowned for his performances of A Christmas Carol. Using a treasure trove of voices and gestures he creates over thirty characters, to inhabit Dickens’ classic. The result is a singular show, intimate, and imaginative. Performing in Dickensian garb, the storyteller creates gripping vignettes with dynamic dialogue. Kruk employs his legendary eloquence, and wit, quickly transforming into Scrooge, Cratchit, Marley, Tiny Tim, and all the spirits. This singular show takes you from Humbug to hope for redemption and joy.”

Mr. Kruk’s theatrical storytelling has been featured on CBS Sunday Morning, The Today Show, The Travel Channel, and at countless schools, libraries festivals, and historic sites. He was selected “Best Storyteller in the Hudson Valley.”

Broadway World

“The show runs one animated hour and uses a treasure trove of voices to create over thirty characters, Jonathan Kruk is immediate, intimate, and imaginative. Transforming into Ebenezer, Bob, and Marley, complete with period garb, lively dialogue, and characters created by concise gestures and expressions, Kruk employs his legendary eloquence.”
