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.

Here they are, in chronological order. God bless them, every one!
