With an original score by Sheldon Harnick (Fiddler on the Roof, The Apple Tree) and Michel Legrand (Yentl, Summer of '42), HUMBUG! The Musical is sure to be an audience favorite for many years to come.
Alan Safier, who has won accolades and standing ovations all across the country for his portrayal of George Burns in the solo performance play Say Goodnight Gracie, transforms himself into Dickens's memorable characters: Ebenezer Scrooge; Tiny Tim; Bob Cratchit; The Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet-to-Come; Jacob Marley; Fezziwig; Mrs. Cratchit; Belle; Fanny...27 characters in all!
HUMBUG! The Musical features a lively original score by Harnick & Legrand, high production values, evocative lighting, and video projections that bring the audience right into Dickens's classic tale of redemption and eternal hope.
This world premiere re-tells the beloved Christmas story with a tunefulness that highlights its eternal humor, humanity, and heart-warming sentiment.
