Why See A Christmas Carol?
Banish Those Humbugs!
An integral part of McCarter's theater season every year, A Christmas Carol is the definitive holiday show for all the family. Based on the book by Charles Dickens, this celebration of humanity and openheartedness follows the story of Ebeneezer Scrooge, a cranky, penny-pinching business man who's taught to true meaning of Christmas by three spirits - the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future - who visit him on Christmas Eve.
Adapted by David Thomspon and directed by Adam Immerwahr, McCarter's A Christmas Carol is a re-imagined production, featuring exciting stage and costume design inspired by a deep dive into the source material. It will also feature members of the local commmunity, acting alongside the professional cast, really giving the show an authentic feel.

Yes, it really is that good. A show about young rebels grabbing and shaping the future of an unformed country, "Hamilton" is making its own resonant history by changing the language of musicals.
My Fair Lady
Expertly acted, pleasingly sung, and often visually splendid, it makes a good faith attempt to honor the show's history and intentions while also acknowledging the charged sexual politics of the moment

Caissie Levy is stunning as Elsa, the beautiful princess with the cursed gift to turn her kingdom into ice, and Patti Murin makes a darling Anna, the earthbound princess whose love for her sister is the only thing that can set Elsa free.
