Summoners Ensemble's A CHRISTMAS CAROL Opens Tonight
Summoners Ensemble Theatre's A Christmas Carol opens tonight at the Merchant's House Museum (29 East 4th Street, Manhattan).
In this limited engagement John Kevin Jones' outstanding solo performance brings A Christmas Carol's ghosts, graveyards, greed, and redemption to life in the manner of Charles Dickens himself. Based on Dickens' own performance text of A Christmas Carol, Jones and director Rhonda Dodd have crafted a work of captivating storytelling that highlights Dickens' stunning narrative imagery and wry humor.
The landmark 1832 Merchant's House Museum's elegant and intact 19th-century double parlor, complete with original décor, including gas chandeliers, period paintings, and marble fireplace, will be decked with period decorations of the season, providing the perfect setting for this inspired telling of Dickens' timeless tale. Called "Manhattan's most haunted house," by The New York Times, A Christmas Carol's ghosts could call no better place home.
