A prosperous ‘Carol’

It didn’t set records like, say, “Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark,’’ but the Berkshire Theatre Group’s annual production of “A Christmas Carol’’ was nonetheless a big success. This year’s show, which featured James Taylor and his wife, Kim, as Mr. and Mrs. Bob Cratchit, was seen by more than 10,000 people from 22 states, generating $175,000 in ticket revenue for the fledgling theater group. “It was a remarkable experience, not just getting to work with our own children, but joining a cast that gave their heart and soul to this endeavor, from [co-directors] Eric Hill and Gray Simons at the top, to our beloved Tiny Tim,’’ the Taylors said in a statement this week. No word on whether the singer and his spouse will reprise their roles next year.
