A Christmas Carol (2020)
World Premiere Live Capture – November 28
Replay Video On Demand through January 3
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.
Theatre Tallahassee is a partner in this joint project with TBD Pictures, La Jolla Playhouse, and On The Stage.
TBD Pictures Producer Hunter Arnold said, “Due to COVID-19, the country’s theaters have lost over 80% of their income, a number that is devastating to our community. These theaters, the work they produce, and the artists and workers they support are a fundamental part of our society. We must fight for their survival.”
This streaming video event will benefit Theatre Tallahassee as well as other community, amateur, regional theaters across the country which have been devastated by the pandemic.
