Hi, Leslie Harris here, and I recently attended the opening night of the Goodman Theatre’s A Christmas Carol. If you’ve never gone, it’s nothing short of magical. If you have gone, you already know that!
You probably know the story, but this cast and production is sure to delight even those who have trouble finding the Christmas spirit.
The fabulous Larry Yando is back for his 15th consecutive year as Ebenezer Scrooge, and the rest of the cast shines brightly as well. There are of course many dark moments to the story, but there are laugh out loud moments as well, and the show flows seamlessly throughout. The staging is also spectacular, and the Goodman Theatre itself is beautiful.
I have seen and loved the Goodman Theatre’s production of A Christmas Carol several times, but this year was different. I was actually choked up at the end, eagerly joining in the standing ovation.
A Christmas Carol runs now through December 31st at the Goodman Theater in Chicago. Get more information and tickets HERE
