This one-man production of "A Christmas Carol" is an unforgettable way to experience the true spirit of Dickens' story. As he absorbs each character in turn, the storytelling is so compelling that you will forget there is just one person on stage. A not to be missed, uniquely New York holiday experience.
I have made this show an annual holiday tradition--now having seen about 5 performances--and each time I tear up at John Kevin Jones' masterful grasp of Dicken's storytelling and its poignancy. I am hooked! There are many theatrical versions of this story to see each year in the City, but truly, none strikes a chord like this one performed in the beautiful parlor of the Merchant's House Museum, which only deepens the vividness of the experience.
This is a magical production! I was completely mesmerized and transported to the world of Dickens. Kevin Jones carries us with him on this journey into the past/future in such an intimate way that it took my breath away. Don't miss this unique performance in a historic setting. Your friends will thank you for rekindling the spirit of Christmas within all of you.
