On February 7, 1812, Charles Dickens is born. Actor and writer, Simon Callow has devoted considerable time considering Dickens as a performer as much as an actor. Callow’s take on Dickens reframes the author as an artist who drew in fame with a good deal of great writing, but also masterful performance. During his lifetime, Dickens published books but his was known for his reading tours, not unlike many storyteller writers today like David Sedaris.
