A Christmas Carol

Nov 28 – Jan 3 | Unrated | 91 min
Available for pre-order beginning Oct 23.

Experience A Christmas Carol unlike any other—past, present or future. The timeless tale of Ebenezer Scrooge has been given new life thanks to the haunting vision of one of Broadway’s most imaginative directors, Michael Arden (Tony-winning Best Revival - Once on this Island), and the Tony-winning virtuoso, Jefferson Mays (I Am My Own Wife, Gentleman’s Guide...), starring in 50 roles of a lifetime. Staged exclusively for this production and captured live with breathtaking clarity, this must-watch streaming event conjures the powerful spirits of Christmas and brings all the magic of live theatre home for the holidays. The Hollywood Reporter declares, “It’s a towering achievement! You’ve seen it before, but not like this.” And the Los Angeles Times raves, “Mays is a rare gem and Arden is ingenious. For true theater lovers, there can be no better gift this season.”
