Time Out says

Pip, Pip, hooray! As Jefferson Mays makes a delicious meal of A Christmas Carol on Broadway, the estimable British comedian and actor Eddie Izzard offers another solo adaptation of a Charles Dickens classic: the 1861 coming-of-age story Great Expectations, which gives Izzard the chance to incarnate a host of colorful characters including escaped convicts, an eccentric spinster, her frosty daughter and, of course, the upwarldly mobile young orphan at the narrative's center. The adaptation is by Izzard's brother, Mark; Selina Cadell is the director.
