A Christmas Carol

Written by Jack Thorne Based on the novel by Charles Dickens

The holiday masterpiece, A CHRISTMAS CAROL, comes to Broadway for 8 weeks only following critically acclaimed runs at London’s Old Vic. Two visionary talents, playwright Jack Thorne (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child) and director Matthew Warchus (Matilda), offer a magical new interpretation of Charles Dickens’ beloved story. Time Out raves, “Five stars. It’s a stunning piece of visual theater.”
This timeless — and timely — tale of redemption welcomes theatergoers of all ages into an immersive experience that’s brimming with Christmas spirit. It’s “a loving, powerful adaptation” (The Stage) that features dazzling staging, moving storytelling and 12 cherished Christmas carols, including “Joy to the World,” “Silent Night” and “It Came Upon the Midnight Clear.” Don’t miss your chance to be part of a show that’s so “joyful and heartwarming, not even Scrooge himself could dislike it!” (The Telegraph).

A Christmas Carol. In Prose. Being a Ghost Story of Christmas, commonly known as A Christmas Carol, is a novella by Charles Dickens, first published in London by Chapman & Hall in 1843 and illustrated by John Leech. A Christmas Carol recounts the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, an elderly miser who is visited by the ghost of his former business partner Jacob Marley and the spirits of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come. After their visits, Scrooge is transformed into a kinder, gentler man.

Lyceum Theatre

The Lyceum Theatre is a Broadway theatre located at 149 West 45th Street in midtown Manhattan, New York City. Opened in 1903, it is one of the two oldest surviving Broadway venues (along with the New Amsterdam Theatre). The Lyceum is the oldest continuously operating legitimate theatre in New York City, and the first Broadway theatre ever to be granted landmark status (1974). It is one of the few theatres in New York which continues to operate under its original name. Designed by architects Herts & Tallant, the Lyceum was built by impresario Daniel Frohman, replacing Frohman’s earlier Lyceum on Fourth Avenue that closed in April 1902. The new Lyceum opened on November 2, 1903 with the play The Proud Prince. Frohman’s brother Charles served as the theater’s manager until his death in 1915
