Goodman’s 40th Annual Production of “A Christmas Carol” is Practically Perfect!

***** Highly Recommended ****** The Goodman Theatre’s annual production of “A Christmas Carol” remains essentially the same from year to year, which audiences seem to love. “A Christmas Carol” is holiday tradition for many families, spanning generations. The Goodman lobby is festive with decorations and a sparkling holiday shopping area. Now in its 40th year, “A Christmas Carol” is once again practically perfect – fabulous cast, lavish sets and colorful period costumes. I give it 4 Holiday Spotlights.

“A Christmas Carol” runs through December 31st in the Goodman’s Albert Theatre, 170 N. Dearborn, Chicago. Most reasonable parking options for the Goodman:

• Valet parking garage on Randolph between Michigan and Wabash (across from the Cultural Center) at $15
• Government Center garage on Lake between LaSalle and Dearborn, online advance payment at, $17.
