Bless us, everyone! A Sherlock Carol, a new play written and directed by Mark Shanahan, will open off Broadway at New World Stages this holiday season. The eight-week run will begin Nov. 11 ahead of a Nov. 22 opening night, and close Jan. 2, 2022.

In the play, a now-grown Tiny Tim enlists the help of Sherlock Holmes to investigate Ebenezer Scrooge’s mysterious death. While Holmes is working to solve the crime on Christmas Eve, the ghosts of the past, present, and future visit him as they did Scrooge.

New World Stages will have Covid-19 safety protocols in place. Ticketholders will be notified within 14 days of their chosen performance about up-to-date protocols; these may include mask enforcement, vaccination or negative test requirements, and/or increased cleaning and ventilation based on CDC and state guidelines.

Casting for A Sherlock Carol will be announced at a later date.

The show is produced by Raymond Bokhour and Drew McVety for Fat Goose Productions, Laura Z. Barket for Theatre Nerd Productions, and executive produced by Nathan Gehan and Jamison Scott for ShowTown Productions. ShowTown Theatricals is the general manager.

A Sherlock Carol tickets will be available soon.
