NYC's "Christmas Carol" Likely To Scare Dickens Out of You in Historic Setting

If you're looking to have a little variety in your Charles Dickens, you might try "A Christmas Carol" at New York's Merchant's House Museum.

Sure it's got all of the visitors from Christmas past, present and future - but all 20 characters are played by one actor and its done in one hour - leaving you enough time to still do your holiday shopping.

John Kevin Jones recreates his solo show of the famed classic in the intimate setting of the landmark Merchant's House Museum, built in 1832.

The Merchant House's elegant double parlor, complete with original decor, is the ideal setting to take his through the classic ghost tale that Jones adapted with director Rhonda Dodd.

(Or perhaps not as, having met the sexy Jones, it doesn't seem like he can be such a terror - but perhaps his acting will prove otherwise.)

The show runs through December 20. As seating is limited, you should act now by going to

Tickets are $37.50 each and the Merchant's Museum House is at 29 East 4th Street in New York.
