We all know the classic holiday tale: Scrooge is an asshole, gets visited on Christmas Eve by three ghosts who show him the error of his ways and is reformed by morning, thereby saving Christmas for his employee Bob Cratchit and family (including the adorable and tragic Tiny Tim). It was only a matter of time before someone came up with a spin-off. Written by Tom Mula, this play details the otherworldly journey of Scrooges late business partner (and introductory Christmas apparition) Jacob Marley as he tries to save his old crotchety friends soul. Winning awards and standing ovations around the country, Jacob Marleys Christmas Carol may not be Dickens but it just might become a new family Christmas tradition.
