Watch Jefferson Mays Depart The Music Man for A Christmas Carol

Tony Award winner Jefferson Mays has left his role as Mayor Shinn of River City at The Music Man and is heading on over to the Nederlander Theatre to begin performances in his universally celebrated tour-de-force performance in Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. Watch him make the journey in this brand new video, which features a special appearance from Mark Linn-Baker who begins performances as Mayor Shinn in The Music Man October 25.

Directed by the acclaimed, two-time Tony Award nominee Michael Arden, adapted by Mays, Susan Lyons, and Arden, and conceived by Arden and Tony Award nominee Dane Laffrey, A Christmas Carol had a wildly acclaimed world premiere in 2018 at Los Angeles’ Geffen Playhouse. In the winter of 2020, at the height of the pandemic, producer Hunter Arnold released a special filmed version of the production as way for theaters across the country to raise money and bring the magic of A Christmas Carol to 84 partner theaters across the country.

A Christmas Carol on Broadway is produced by Arnold and Kayla Greenspan. The creative team includes Dane Laffrey (scenic and costume design), Ben Stanton (lighting design), Joshua D. Reid (sound design), Lucy Mackinnon (projection design), Cookie Jordan (hair, wig, and makeup design), John Kristiansen (puppet design), Stephen Kopel (casting director), and Justin Scribner (associate director and production stage manager).
