The cast was on point, in this very timeless, engaging and lively production. This is the first time I've seen A Christmas Carol at the Goodman and was pleasantly surprised! I would return to see it next year.

Great to see this classic again. A bit of comedy woven into the story made this time around even more fun for the kids. Would definitely recommend! Seats were not great, and I'm a Red Velvet member (new member - will not renew if seats continue...continued

Amazing! What a great show! I thoroughly enjoyed it. We had the very last the very last seats up in the top. The very last row, but the seats were awesome, we could see everything. We loved every minute of it! Very well done! I would see it again...continued

This was a great show. All the actors did a wonderful job, particularly Scrooge. The theater, the set design, everything was well done.

Even as a child, I've always loved this classic Charles Dickens tale. To bring it to life on stage is just the icing on the cake! I typically take my children to see it every year. There were more special effects this year, than in recent...continued

Lovely production of a tried and true classic. It is a bit long and could use some trimming here and there as well as tightening some of the direction. A couple of the musical numbers could be shortened or cut as they add nothing but redundancy...continued

This show is absolutely wonderful. The set is amazing and the special effects were suprising. I would not recommend this show for children under 5 years old as some of the special effects could be frightening (ie: the ghosts). It is a perfect way...continued

Fantastic. This was my first time seeing A Christmas Carol at the Goodman, but I think this could easily become an annual tradition. The sets were wonderful, the special effects were very cool, and the story was heartwarming, as usual. Very...continued

I had seen the show before, but took a recently widowed friend and it cheered her up enormously.
