A Christmas Carol

A Christmas Carol

Tickets are on sale now for A Christmas Carol at the Lyceum Theatre on Broadway.

Following acclaimed runs at London's Old Vic Theatre, A Christmas Carol comes to Broadway for a limited 8-week run this holiday season.

From Matthew Warchus, the visionary director of Matilda, and Jack Thorne, the playwright behind the smash hit success of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, this new adaptation of the classic Charles Dickens tale is headlined by "House of Cards" star Campbell Scott in the iconic role of Ebenezer Scrooge.

The cast of this festive Broadway premiere also includes two-time Tony Award winner Andrea Martin, taking on the role of the Ghost of Christmas Past and Tony Award winner LaChanze, doubling up as Mrs. Fezziwig and the Ghost of Christmas Present.

This enchanting production originally premiered in London during the 2017 holiday season, starring BAFTA Awards winner Rhys Ifans as the cold-hearted miser, Ebenezer Scrooge. It was so warmly received that the Old Vic decided to revive it for a second limited holiday season engagement in 2018, this time with UK television favorite Stephen Tompkinson taking on the Scrooge duties. Third time’s a charm for the Old Vic, evidently, as A Christmas Carol returns to the venue this year with Paterson Joseph in the central role, marking the first time the Dickens classic has been presented in London and on Broadway simultaneously.

The production, recommended for ages 8 and above, also boasts twelve beautiful arrangements of some of the most beloved Christmas carols of all time, courtesy of Christopher Nightingale. From “Silent Night” to “It Came Upon the Midnight Clear,” get ready to indulge yourselves in the joyous sounds of the season and feel your spirits lifted by this immortal tale of redemption.

Running time: 
2hrs 15mins (including 1 intermission)
