Charles Dickens' classic with Ebenezer Scrooge, Bob Cratchit, Tiny Tim and the Ghosts of Past, Present & Future get the full Broadway treatment in Alan Menken’s-Lynn Ahrens’-Mike Okrent's adaptation of A CHRISTMAS CAROL. This is the version that left New Yorkers and tourists alike gasping in wonder and merriment every year as the story unfolded on the stage at Madison Square Garden. In 2004, this version became the basis of a NBC television spectacular featuring Kelsey Grammer as Scrooge, surrounded by an array of stars including Jason Alexander, Jesse L. Martin, Jane Krakowski, Geraldine Chaplin, Jennifer Love Hewitt and Ruthie Henshall. Alan Menken (Little Shop Of Horrors) and Lynn Ahrens (Ragtime The Musical, Once On This Island) have collaborated on a score that is filled with beautiful melodies and emotional lyrics. Their song "A Place Called Home" has become a holiday standard.
