Description

Not only Marley, but the ghosts of many sordid individuals, help the spirits of Past, Present and Future turn Ebenezer Scrooge from his pitiful, angry existence to one of great joy. Taking part of its premise from Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle and Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, writer and composer William A. Reilly and Lyricist Gary Lamb turn this timeless classic into a musical for all times. With the inclusion of whores, police on the take, a recently homeless mother and her young daughter as well as tiny tim being a teenage unionizer, the story we all remember has been re-imagined into a musical that is no longer an English tale, but an American institution.
