The Goodman Theatre presents its annual production of A Christmas Carol. This adaptation of Charles Dickens' classic story is a beloved Chicago tradition, produced every year at the Goodman. Audiences look forward to the "bah humbugs," the electrifying arrival of the ghosts, the jubilant musical numbers and dancing, and Scrooge's joyful rediscovery of life, love and the Christmas spirit. Now celebrating its 35th anniversary, this year's production of the timeless holiday tale promises to be merrier and more magical than ever. Learn More

My friends and I are looking to go again! Witty, funny, fast-moving - a linguistic treat! Then, of course, is the cultural examination. As an Asian-American, I found myself pondering all the profound subtleties that were captured and embedded in the show. However, you don't have to be Asian at all to have appreciated it - as evidenced by the make-up of the audience enjoying themselves on Saturday night - given the interesting display and contrast of Chinese as well as Western traditions and mores. Well casted with sharp spot-on acting by all; clean, undistracting scenery. All in all, loved how clever, smart and tightly produced on all levels the entire show was. English subtitles for Mandarin portions.
