Christmas Carol At Abrons Arts

Shoot…I am going to miss this one. If you are in New York, go and see it. Tickets are $20 and $10 for students.
Created and directed by acclaimed theater and new media artist Reid Farrington.

Haunting images from 35 different film versions of A Christmas Carol are projected on moving screens using a modern-day version of the magic lantern. Film clips collide and combine with live performers on stage, eerily blurring the distinction between performance and video projection. Through complex staging and choreography, the show mashes together over 100 years of film history. Performers slip in and out of characters from the Alastair Sim, George C. Scott, and Bill Murray versions , as well as The Muppets and Mr. Magoo variations (and many more) to create an imaginative and new interpretation of the beloved Dickens story.
