Campbell Scott plays Scrooge in the Broadway version of Charles Dickens's classic yuletide story about a miser forcibly unclenched by visions of his own grinchiness. Matthew Warchus directs a 2017 adaptation by Jack Thorne (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child); the production includes visually arresting sequences and a dozen Christmas carols. Andrea Martin and LaChanze play two of Scrooge's ghostly guests.
Holiday time in New York offers a multitude of onstage Christmas shows for those who like to soak in the cheer. But among the city's many yuletide offerings, two stories are always especially popular: The dance world has variations on The Nutcracker, and the theater world has riffs on Charles Dickens's 1843 novella A Christmas Carol. If you want to see Dickens's tale of regret and redemption onstage in 2019, you have more than a dozen options, from a lavish Broadway production to star-studded readings and a downtown marionette show. Here they are, in chronological order. God bless them, every one!
