A Christmas Carol
Charles Dickens in New York, 1867
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.”
Join Mr. Dickens, portrayed by actor John Kevin Jones, as he tells his timeless Christmas tale in the elegant intact Greek Revival parlor of the landmark 1832 Merchant’s House Museum.
Surrounded by 19th century holiday decorations, flickering candles, and richly appointed period furnishings, audiences will be transported back 150 years in this captivating one-hour performance created from Dickens’ own script.
NEW this year! Toast the holiday season with actor John Kevin Jones in our cozy mid-19th century kitchen before the performance. Mulled wine and light fare will be served. Pre-performance reception begins at 6 p.m. each night, except December 23 and Christmas Eve, which begin at 5 p.m.
LIMITED ENGAGEMENT December 10 – 24
Seating limited to 40; One-hour performance
ALL PERFORMANCES ARE SOLD OUT.
