J. Max Baker continues a family tradition of performing ONE CHRISTMAS CAROL, a solo adaptation of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol originally written by his father, Douglas H. Baker, and produced internationally in multiple productions since its Las Vegas premiere in 1995. After making its New York premiere in 2019, performances return December 15 at The Chain Theater in Manhattan.
ONE CHRISTMAS CAROL is a one-man tour de force featuring one actor playing 34 iconic characters in Charles Dickens’ timeless tale about selfishness and selflessness. Stripped down to its bare essence, it forgoes the usual opulence of the holidays and focuses only on what is of utmost importance. Dickens’ colorful characters are all here —- Ebenezer Scrooge, Bob Cratchitt, Tiny Tim, Fezziwig, Belle, and the Ghosts of Christmases Past, Present, and Future —- springing to new life with a treasure trove of moral lessons for one and all. God bless us, every one!
ONE CHRISTMAS CAROL runs Wednesday, Dec. 15 at 7pm; Thursday, Dec. 16 at 7pm; Friday, Dec. 17 at 8pm; Saturday, Dec. 18 at 2pm and 8pm; and Sunday, Dec. 19 at 3pm. The Chain Theater is located at 312 West 36th Street New York, NY 10018 (between 8th & 9th Avenues — accessible from the A,C,E,1,1,3 & LIRR trains at 34th St/Penn Station).
