Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol gets the full Broadway treatment with music by Alan Menken (The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Little Shop of Horrors, Newsies), and book & lyrics by Lynn Ahrens (Ragtime, Seussical, Once on This Island) and Mike Ockrent (Me and My Girl).
This spectacular musical extravaganza ran for ten years at Madison Square Garden. In 2004, this version became the basis of an NBC Hallmark Entertainment special featuring Kelsey Grammer as Scrooge and an array of stars including Jason Alexander, Jesse L. Martin, Jane Krakowski, Geraldine Chaplin, Jennifer Love Hewitt and Ruthie Henshall. But even without starry casts and spectacular trappings, this A Christmas Carol retains its emotional power and pure joy thanks to the marvelously told story and beautiful score.
