Celebrating 45 Years

Nov 19 - Dec 31, 2022 in Goodman's Albert Theatre

Chicago's favorite holiday tradition for four decades.

Nearly two million theatergoers have experienced Chicago’s must-see annual holiday tradition, Goodman Theatre’s A Christmas Carol. With first-rate performances— starring award-winner Larry Yando as Ebenezer Scrooge for the 15th year—and “amazing sets, gorgeous costumes and eye-popping effects” (Chicago Reader), the heartwarming story of generosity’s triumph over greed comes to vivid life. Don’t miss this 45th anniversary production of “the best Christmas story ever told” (Time Out Chicago).

Larry Yando returns for his 15th year as Ebenezer Scrooge! Mr. Yando will be appearing in every performance of A Christmas Carol with exception to those listed below.
