How it Works

“A towering achievement! You’ve seen it before, but not like this. A personal best for Jefferson Mays. He delivers an epic performance embodying 50 characters." –The Hollywood Reporter

Experience A Christmas Carol unlike any other — past, present, or future. The timeless tale of Ebenezer Scrooge comes to thrilling new life as Tony Award® winner Jefferson Mays (I Am My Own Wife, Gentleman’s Guide …) plays over 50 roles in a virtuosic, master class of a performance that must be seen to be believed. This theatrical achievement comes from the haunting vision of one of Broadway’s most imaginative directors, Michael Arden (Tony-winning Best Revival - Once on this Island).

Staged exclusively for this production and captured live with breathtaking clarity, this must-watch streaming event conjures the powerful spirits of Christmas and brings all the magic of live theater home for the holidays.

“For true theater lovers, there can be no better gift this season. Jefferson Mays is a rare gem and Michael Arden is ingenious.” –Los Angeles Times
