A Christmas Carol

Nov 17 - Dec 30, 2018 In the Albert
Approximate running time: 2 hours, 15 minutes with 1 intermission

  • "Tugs at all the right heartstrings." – Chicago Tribune

Nearly 1.5 million theatergoers have attended “the crown jewel of the holiday season” (Daily Herald) since the Goodman established it as an annual offering in 1978—a time when only a handful of U.S. theaters mounted the production. Dickens’ holiday classic is the iconic tale of greedy businessman Ebenezer Scrooge, whose sizable bank account is only matched by his disdain for the holidays. One Christmas Eve, Scrooge is visited by four ghosts who take him on a spectacular adventure through his past, present and future, helping him rediscover the joys of life, love and friendship.
