Based loosely on the Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, CHRISTMAS IS COMIN’ UPTOWN is a musical featuring several soul-stirring songs.
All those Dickensian characters dancing, jiving and swinging to a Harlem beat? Right on! CHRISTMAS IS COMIN’ UPTOWN, produced by Paul Robeson Theatre, comes to Shea’s 710 Theatre December 8 to the 18 for seven performances.
For tickets ($23.50-$26.50) call 1-800-745-3000, go to ticketmaster.com, or visit the Shea’s Box Office. Senior and student tickets are available.
Scrooge is a Harlem slumlord about to foreclose an apartment house, a recreation center and a church when his late partner and the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future take him on their rounds.
He comes upon his own grave after watching tiny Tim’s burial procession and he’s reformed. There’s one addition to the classic tale – a rousing gospel number in a Baptist church.
Made possible by funds from Cullen Foundation.
