A Christmas Carol

“It’s a towering achievement! You’ve seen it before, but not like this.” The Hollywood Reporter


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 WifeGentleman’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.

World Premiere Live Capture: November 28 / Video On Demand Until January 3
