“IT’S A BEAUTIFUL, WELL-FELT PERFORMANCE!
The air is fragrant with mulled wine and mince pies.” – NY Post
Directed by Erwin Maas
Featuring Elmore James
The past, present and future intermingle in an enchanting new site-specific parlor performance of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. Set in an historic 19th century Chelsea townhouse, complementary mince pies and mulled wine will be served at every performance.
Produced by Origin Theatre Company, this classic holiday favorite features a diverse cast headed by acclaimed Broadway veteran and opera singer Elmore James. The piece is directed by Erwin Maas and includes a chorus of period carolers.
First published in 1843, A Christmas Carol was adapted for the stage within weeks of its publication. Dickens’ own command performances drew huge crowds in large theatres across England and in a famous tour of America in 1867-68.
Origin evokes this original staging by transforming the Chelsea townhouse that was once home to Geraldine Page & Rip Torn, with the sights, sounds and smells of Victorian domestic life.
Join us for this two-week only special engagement. Tickets are extremely limited.
