Adding a Broadway flourish to a timeless tale in the form of Alan Menken's memorable melodies and Lynn Ahrens' sparkling lyrics, this musical adaptation of the Dickensian heart-warmer tracks Ebenezer Scrooge's metamorphosis from miserable miser to benevolent money-lending butterfly as three ghosts of time and at least one incarnation of Dr. Who lead him through the past, present, and future. Despite the fresh twist on a well-known narrative, A Christmas Carol, The Musical admirably refrains from including the speedboat chases, CGI dragons, and extensive wire-fu fights that have marred so many recent adaptations. Shows run November 23 through December 23 and specific show times can be found on their website.
