Is there anyone who doesn't love Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol? The story is filled with the holiday spirit - and hauntings and redemption and celebration and forgiveness. There isn't much to dislike.
Movie director Joe Calarco interviewed by Broadway.com
Penny-pinching and bad-tempered old miser Ebenezer Scrooge goes on the adventure of his life, from his past to his present and beyond and learns that the value of gold will never equal that of genuine love for his fellow men. The classic tale thrills with it's beloved characters and message of compassion, love and kindness and of course, Christmas spirit!
Ever since Charles Dickens first penned A Christmas Carol in 1843, it has seen myriad stage adaptations and the popularity of this tale of redemption and second chances has seemingly never waned. From stage to screen, opera to one-man shows, it is one of the most influential Christmas shows and a traditional holiday outing that defines the joy of the Yuletide period for most of us.
Ebenezer Scrooge doesn't see the point of letting his employees have a day off for Christmas, not even kind Bob Cratchit, whose son Tiny Tim is very sick. Eventually, he is convinced and retires to his room to pass Christmas Eve as he usually does, alone. But this Christmas is different. He has a visitor for a change, the wretched soul of his former business partner Jacob Marley. Doomed to wander the earth for eternity for his sins in life, Marley warns Scrooge of 3 impending visitations.
In a flurry of fear, he meets the gentle Ghost of Christmas Past, the jolly Ghost of Christmas Present and the terrifying Ghost of Christmas to Come, all of whom want to teach him a lesson...
