John Kevin Jones to Return to One-Man A CHRISTMAS CAROL at Merchant's House Museum
Summoners Ensemble Theatre and the Merchant's House Museum announce A Christmas Carol at the Merchant's House Museum. John Kevin Jones recreates his outstanding solo performance of A Christmas Carol, directed by Dr. Rhonda Dodd, in the intimate Greek revival double parlor of the landmark 1832 Merchant's House Museum (29 East 4th Street, Manhattan).
John Kevin Jones 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 Dodd have crafted a work of captivating storytelling that highlights Dickens' stunning narrative imagery and wry humor. Jones' performance is "... like an entire theatre company ... under one hat" (as historian Thomas Carlyle remarked of Dickens' famed public readings).
The 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.
Come celebrate the season with this unique retelling of a holiday classic, glimpsed through the lens of Old New York. "God bless us, every one!"
