Have a recent run-in with Scrooge in the grocery line?  Brush it off and be sure to encounter the real deal this season at Ford’s Theatre’s production of “A Christmas Carol.”  Ghosts of ChPicture 7ristmas Past, Present and Future travel across the 19th century stage under the direction of the Signature Theatre’s Michael Baron.  Echoes of “bah humbug!” ring through the historic President’s Box as renowned Washington performer, Edward Gero, brings Charles Dickens’ notorious character,  Ebenezer Scrooge, to life.

Recently renovated, Ford’s Theatre is one of the most visited historical sites in America, and with such a rich history, you’ll be sure to take in more than just a good show.  Be sure to visit the Ford’s Theatre Museum, full of Lincoln memorabilia and unique artifacts from that fateful night, including the pistol that Booth used to assassinate the President.  Head on over to the Petersen House and stand in the same room where Lincoln spent the last hours of his life.
