A Christmas Carol is the most famous book Charles Dickens ever wrote and one of the most daring. As the Ghosts spirit Scrooge from his past to his present to his future, Dickens plunges the reader cinematically from the miser's dank and creaking house in the City to riotous festivities, from cozy hearths to graveyards. And all the time the author's voice, tender, savage, magisterial, is present. Originally seen for three seasons in New York and in London in 1993 at the Old Vic, A Christmas Carol won Patrick Stewart an Olivier Award for 'Best Entertainment' and a 'Best Actor' Drama Desk Award. Patrick Stewart, using just a few props but a wealth of virtuosity and dramatic nuance, conjures up the full world of the beloved classic. He portrays every character in the story including 'Bob Cratchit', 'Tiny Tim', 'Marley', 'Fezziwig' and, of course, the world's most famous curmudgeon, 'Ebenezer Scrooge'.Performers Patrick Stewart.
