Charles Dickens’ classic novel A Christmas Carol gets the full Broadway treatment by the award-winning team of Alan Menken (Beauty And The Beast/The Little Mermaid/Aladdin), Lynn Ahrens (Anastasia/Ragtime/Seussical) and Mike Ockrent (Crazy For You/Me And My Girl).
This joyous musical extravaganza ran every Christmas for ten years at New York’s Madison Square Garden, where The New York Times called it “a tonic for adults, and for children a transfixing journey”.
The show stars critically acclaimed multi award-winning actor Robert Lindsay (My Family, Oliver!) as Ebenezer Scrooge. He is joined by Olivier-nominees Sophie-Louise Dann (The Girls, Made in Dagenham, Lend Me a Tenor) and Michael Xavier (Into the Woods, Sunset Boulevard). The cast is completed by Glenn Carter (Jersey Boys, Jesus Christ Superstar), Nicolas Colicos (The Bodyguard), Lucie Jones (2017 UK Eurovision entrant), Rebecca Lock (Mary Poppins), Hugh Maynard (Miss Saigon) and Gemma Sutton (Gypsy).
