A Sherlock Carol at New World Stages

A SHERLOCK CAROL TO PLAY NEW WORLD STAGES FOR EIGHT WEEK LIMITED HOLIDAY ENGAGEMENT!

FIRST PREVIEW THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 11, 2021

OPENING NIGHT MONDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 2021

FINAL PERFORMANCE SUNDAY, JANUARY 2, 2022               

A Sherlock Carol, a new holiday play written and directed by Mark Shanahan, will play New World Stages (340 West 50th Street) for an eight- week limited holiday engagement.  Previews begin Thursday, November 11, 2021, with opening night scheduled for Monday, November 22, 2021, and the final performance on Sunday, January 2, 2022.  Casting will be announced at a later date.

When a grown-up Tiny Tim asks Sherlock Holmes to investigate the peculiar death of Ebenezer Scrooge, the Great Detective must use his tools of deduction to get to the bottom of the crime. But it is a dark and treacherous Christmas Eve, and once again the holiday is haunted by the spirits of the past, present and future.

A Sherlock Carol stars Broadway favorites Drew McVety (Billy Elliot, Spamalot) as Sherlock Holmes and Thom Sesma (Sweeney Todd, Pacific Overtures) as Ebenezer Scrooge, with Dan Domingues (The Tempest, Wild Goose Dreams), Anissa Felix (Summer: The Donna Summer Musical, Sunset Boulevard), Tony Award nominee and Drama Desk Award winner Isabel Keating (The Boy From Oz, It’s Only a Play), and Mark Price (Mary Poppins, Chicago). Joe Delafield (Tartuffe, Fashions for Men), Alexandra Kopko (Peter and the Starcatcher, A Nantucket Christmas Carol), and Byron St. Cyr (My Fair Lady national tour, Miss Saigon national tour) round out the company.

The creative team features scenic design by Tony Award nominee Anna Louizos (School of Rock, In the Heights), costume design by Tony Award winner Linda Cho (Take Me Out, Anastasia), lighting design by Obie Award-winner Rui Rita (Skeleton Crew, Velocity of Autumn), original music & sound design by Tony Award nominee John Gromada (The Elephant Man, The Trip to Bountiful), and hair & wig design by Emmy Award nominee Charles G. LaPointe (Hamilton, Ain’t Too Proud). The play is written and directed by Mark Shanahan (The Dingdong, A Merry Little Christmas Carol; NPR’s Ghost Light Series).

A Sherlock Carol is produced by Raymond Bokhour and Drew McVety for Fat Goose Productions, Laura Z. Barket for Theatre Nerd Productions, and executive produced by Nathan Gehan and Jamison Scott for ShowTown Productions. ShowTown Theatricals is the general manager.
