A Christmas Carol
Nov 28 – Jan 3 | Unrated | 91 min
TONY AWARD® WINNER JEFFERSON MAYS REPRISES HIS ACCLAIMED PERFORMANCE IN CHARLES DICKENS’ BELOVED HOLIDAY CLASSIC A CHRISTMAS CAROL TO BENEFIT THE CLASSIC THEATRE!
Directed by two-time Tony Award nominee, Michael Arden
Adaptation written by Jefferson Mays, Susan Lyons & Michael Arden
Experience A Christmas Carol unlike any other—past, present or future. The timeless tale of Ebenezer Scrooge has been given new life thanks to the haunting vision of one of Broadway’s most imaginative directors, Michael Arden (Tony-winning Best Revival – Once on this Island), and the Tony-winning virtuoso, Jefferson Mays (I Am My Own Wife, Gentleman’s Guide…), starring in 50 roles of a lifetime. Staged exclusively for this production and captured live with breathtaking clarity, this must-watch streaming event conjures the powerful spirits of Christmas and brings all the magic of live theatre home for the holidays. The Hollywood Reporter declares, “It’s a towering achievement! You’ve seen it before, but not like this.” And the Los Angeles Times raves, “Mays is a rare gem and Arden is ingenious. For true theater lovers, there can be no better gift this season.”
This streaming video event will benefit The Classic Theatre as well as other community, amateur, and regional theaters across the country which have been devastated by the pandemic.
The filmed version is based on the wildly acclaimed 2018 production which made its world premiere at Los Angeles’ Geffen Playhouse.
