BWW TV: Watch Highlights of Lenny Wolpe and More in A CONNECTICUT CHRISTMAS CAROL at Goodspeed
A family classic has been given a fresh twist in Connecticut's own A Connecticut Christmas Carol by LJ Fecho and Michael O'Flaherty. Goodspeed Musicals continues its commitment to fresh, innovative works with this new musical infused with Connecticut flavor. A Connecticut Christmas Carol runs now through December 24, 2017 at The Terris Theatre in Chester, Conn. BroadwayWorld has a first look at highlights from the show below!
Some of the most beloved storytellers in Connecticut history come alive for a yuletide gathering you won't forget. Famed actor and local legend William Gillette leaves his castle on the Connecticut River to adapt Dickens' holiday classic in the 1920s. Local heroes Mark Twain, Harriet Beecher Stowe and P.T. Barnum make spirited appearances opposite Gillette's Scrooge in a highly theatrical twist on a family favorite. Custom-made for Goodspeed with all-original music, here's a tuneful, heartfelt confection spiced with enough Nutmeg State flavor to sweeten your season. A Connecticut Christmas Carol is supported in part by The Burry Fredrik Foundation.
Scrooge/William Gillette is played by Lenny Wolpe. Bob Cratchit is played by Matt Gibson. The Ghosts are played by Michael Thomas Holmes. Making his Goodspeed debut as Tiny Tim is Connecticut native Robert Berson. The ensemble includes Samantha Bruce. Joining her will be Mark DiConzo, Patrick Graver, Lee Harrington, Celeste Rose, Jeff Sears, and Daisy Wright.
