The two actresses will join Campbell Scott, previously announced to play Ebenezer Scrooge, in the yuletide favorite which begins previews Nov. 7 and officially opens on Nov. 20 at the Lyceum Theatre. Martin, a two-time Tony Award winner for "My Favorite Year" and for "Pippin," will portray the Ghost of Christmas Past. LaChanze, who won a Tony for "The Color Purple," will pull double duty in the show as the Ghost of Christmas Present and as Mrs. Fezziwig.
