Free Read: Estella Scrooge

Ahead of the holiday season, we invite you to have a first look at the libretto for the new musical Estella Scrooge. From the team behind Daddy Long Legs and Jane Eyre, this modern retelling of A Christmas Carol tells the story we love with a fresh twist and characters from other works by Charles Dickens. Estella Scrooge can also be enjoyed streaming online, featuring a cast of Broadway stars including Betsy Wolfe, Clifton Duncan, 2020 Tony Award winner Lauren Patten, Patrick Page, Carolee Carmello and 2020 Tony Award winner Danny Burstein.

Estella Scrooge is a Wall Street tycoon with a penchant for foreclosing. A hotelier in her hometown of Pickwick, Ohio has defaulted on his mortgage and as a Christmas gift to herself, Estella decides to deliver the sad news in person. Arriving at the Harthouse Hotel on Christmas Eve, Estella discovers that the mortgage holder is none other than her childhood sweetheart, Pip Nickleby. A freak snowstorm forces Estella, much to her dismay, to take refuge at Harthouse. That night, as it happened to her ancestor Ebenezer long ago, she too is haunted by three visitations. And oh what uninvited overnight houseguests they are!
