2011 - And so it begins
What started out as a simple idea to hold a reading in Laurie’s living room in Harlem suddenly bloomed into two humble and well received shows at the Abingdon Theatre, with beloved actor Austin Pendleton as our Scrooge. Nerves, excitement, fear; we felt it all. But it was nothing short of an incredible success, and the start of something truly special.
2011 also brought with it our first pre-show lobby festival with live music and food; a true night of celebration, and coming together in hope and new beginnings. We were also honored to bring our Dickens’ Everyone's Carol Education Unit entitled "Your Stories Matter" to Harlem.
