A Christmas Carol features music by renowned composer Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, Little Shop of Horrors) and lyricist Lynn Ahrens (Ragtime, Once on This Island). The stage production, which enjoyed a decade-long run at Madison Square Garden, was overseen by multi-Tony Award winner Susan Stroman (The Producers, Contact).

in his Variety review, Brian Lowry said: "This is the 37th-best production of “A Christmas Carol” I’ve ever seen, and probably the third-best musical version behind Albert Finney in “Scrooge” and “Mr. Magoo.” And even with those disclaimers, it’s still pretty good, which says something about the enduring appeal of Charles Dickens’ story. Adapted from Broadway and populated with spirits of NBC past and present (Kelsey Grammer, Jason Alexander, Jesse L. Martin), it’s not a bad way to close out the Thanksgiving weekend and offers a well-deserved break to the NBC dramas wrestling with 'Desperate Housewives.'"
