Even the grouchiest of Scrooges will soften and sing along with A Lyrical Christmas Carol. The classic Charles Dickens' tale is the same. Ebenezer Scrooge is a bitter old miser who lashes out at his overworked, underpaid employee Bob Cratchit. Yet over the course of Christmas Eve, Scrooge is visited by three spirits, the Ghosts of Christmases Past, Present and Future, which transform his heart and leave him a changed, much kinder man. The Pittsburgh Musical Theater throws tinsel on the tree by adding your favorite Christmas carols to the play. Get into the holiday spirit at New Hazlett Theater Center for Performing Arts.
