Now in it's 44th year, Goodman Theatre's classic production of A Christmas Carol is the heartwarming story of Edenezer Scrooge's discovery of kindness, compassion and redemption—a must-see Chicago holiday tradition now in its fifth decade, enjoyed by nearly two million theatergoers. "Topnoptch performances, spirited song-and-dance numbers" (Newcity), "amazing sets, gorgeous costumes and eye-popping effects" (Chicago Reader) bring to life "the best Christmas story ever told" (Time Out Chicago).

For the first time in its 44-year history, we're able to offer a five-camera, high-quality video recording to stream from home.
