Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

The marvelous Jefferson Mays, who played a mere eight characters in A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder, ups the ante to 50 in this solo version of Charles Dickens’s holiday chestnut, adapted by the Tony-winning actor with Susan Lyons and director Michael Arden (Spring Awakening). The show—let’s call it I Am My Own Ghosts—premiered at L.A.’s Geffen Playhouse in 2018 and has been filmed for streaming this year as a benefit for regional theaters across the country whose own holiday programming has been upended by the pandemic. Tickets cost $50 and proceeds are distributed to participating partner theaters according to ZIP code. (If you’d rather buy through them directly, you can find a list of them here.)
