- A Christmas Carol
The timeless tale of Ebenezer Scrooge comes to a thrilling new life as Tony Award® winner Jefferson Mays (I Am My Own Wife, Gentleman’s Guide…) plays over 50 roles in a virtuosic, master class of a performance that must be seen to be believed. This theatrical achievement comes from the haunting and hope-filled vision of one of Broadway’s most imaginative directors, Michael Arden (Tony-winning Best Revival – Once on this Island).
The Nederlander was constructed in 1921 and has been known throughout the years by various names. First it was named the National, then it became the Billy Rose, named in 1959 after the famous producer/songwriter who bought it, and in 1979 it became the Trafalgar when James and Joseph Nederlander and the British firm of Cooney-Marsh bought it. Today, the David T. Nederlander Theatre stands in honor of the Nederlander Family. Some of the most famous plays have been housed here including Private Lives, King Lear, Cyrano de Bergerac, Julius Caesar, and Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf. One of its most notable productions was Lena Home: The Lady and Her Music, for which she won a special Tony Award. It also housed the musical Rent. For Rent, the theatre’s exterior and interior was decorated to look like a downtown nightclub in order to embrace the atmosphere of the East Village as depicted in the play.
