15-Minute Christmas Carol Performed by 2 Actors


Downtown audiences will be able to enjoy a quick theater break in the midst of the holiday bustle next month with A {15-min!} Christmas Carol, a rollicking, fast-paced version of Dickens's beloved classic performed by just two actors.

From December 10th through 20th, New York Classical Theatre will team up with Arts Brookfield to bring the festive production to the World Financial Center Winter Garden and One Liberty Plaza. The free, fifteen-minute production featuring Scrooge, Marley, Cratchit, Fezziwig, Tiny Tim, and all of Dickens's best-loved characters will unfold among lunchtime crowds in the company’s signature staging style, Panoramic Theatre.

The 13-year-old New York Classical Theatre, described as “a moveable feast” by The New York Times, has won widespread praise for its roving productions of classical plays in Central Park, Battery Park, and the World Financial Center, where standing-room-only audiences were treated recently to a flight of short comedies by the iconic French playwright Molière. This past summer, the company presented Shakespeare's Twelfth Night in Central Park set against a backdrop of waterfalls, bridges, and shady groves, and Battery Park, featuring Castle Clinton and views of the New York Harbor and the Statue of Liberty.
