In December 1867, Charles Dickens arrived in New York City for a month of sold-out performances of his beloved holiday classic, A Christmas Carol.
“… we shall never have any entertainments more charming, or more full of genuine, legitimate and elevating pleasure …”
“The Christmas Carol becomes doubly enchanting when one hears it performed by Dickens.”
“Masterful storytelling” “True to Dickens’ voice” “A tour de force”
“… a celebration of not only the holiday season, but of the value of everyday kindness.”
A Christmas Carol at the Merchant’s House, Charles Dickens in New York, 1867, is presented online by Summoners Ensemble Theatre in association with the Merchant’s House Museum and directed by Dr. Rhonda Dodd.
