Tony-Nominated Director Michael Arden Is Bringing 'A Christmas Carol' to Life Like Never Before - For a Great Cause!

Are you a Broadway fan who has been missing live theater in 2020? Or do you enjoy watching timeless stories be told in inventive new ways? Well, then we have your weekend plans settled!

The highly anticipated live capture recording of A Christmas Carol, directed by Tony nominee Michael Arden, is now available to stream from your own home.

The timeless tale of Ebenezer Scrooge comes to thrilling new life with Tony winner Jefferson Mays playing over 50 roles. This filmed version is based on the acclaimed 2018 production, which premiered at the Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles.

The streaming event will benefit partner theaters all around the United States that have been devastated by the pandemic. Community, amateur, and regional theaters were provided materials that allowed them to market A Christmas Carol directly to their subscribers and single ticket buyers. Proceeds from ticket sales will be distributed accordingly, providing crucial funding during theater’s darkest hour.

Michael said in a statement, “My theater career began when I was a 10-year-old Texan playing Tiny Tim in the Midland Community Theatre production of A Christmas Carol. In a time when theaters and arts workers across the country are in great need, bringing a story that celebrates the power of creativity, community, and our shared humanity is humbling.”

Jefferson is best known for his work in the stage shows I Am My Own Wife and A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder. He also has appeared in TV shows like Perry Mason, I Am the Night, and Law & Order: SVU.

Michael launched his career on Broadway as an actor before moving into his current role as a groundbreaking director. He received Tony nominations for helming the recent revivals of Spring Awakening and Once on This Island.
