This intimate tour-de-force performance embodies the very heart of the beloved holiday classic celebrating love, hope and redemption.
Originally slated to be performed in front of a live audience in the Quadracci Powerhouse, in person performances of Jacob Marley’s Christmas Carol were cancelled due to an increase in COVID-19 cases and in response to the City of Milwaukee’s Public Health Order establishing Phase 4.2 of the Moving Milwaukee Forward Safely Plan.
Milwaukee Rep has partnered with HMS Media, a 20-time Emmy Award-winning multimedia company specializing in the broadcast of live performance, to capture Jacob Marley’s Christmas Carol from the Quadracci Powerhouse stage with multiple, high-definition cameras and produce the digital recording that can be streamed worldwide December 10 -24, 2020.
Jacob Marley’s Christmas Carol is a fully realized production with a creative team including direction by Artistic Director Mark Clements, music director and foley artist Dan Kazemi (West Side Story, Hedwig, Milwaukee Rep), set design by Arnold Bueso (Freaky Friday, PCPA), lighting design by Jason Fassl (Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Milwaukee Rep), costume design by Alexander B. Tecoma (West Side Story, Milwaukee Rep), and sound design by Andre Pluess (The Minutes, Steppenwolf).
