The Christmas spirit(s) will be back next year! The new holiday play A Sherlock Carol, which is currently running at New World Stages through January 2, announced plans for another New York engagement in the 2022 holiday season. “Thanks to the warm embrace from New York City this show is poised to be a spirited, perennial favorite, a new holiday tradition,” producers Raymond Bokhour, Drew McVety, and Laura Z. Barket said in a joint statement. “Just like Christmas itself, we intend to return year after year and spread joy.”
As quickly as the holidays come around, so does another iteration of Charles Dickens's 1843 tale, A Christmas Carol. This season, Mark Shanahan samples Dickens' Christmas classic and blends two of the most famous storybook characters, Scrooge and Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes, to create A Sherlock Carol, a merry yet uneventful production open now off Broadway at New World Stages.
