The father and son - both named Joe Plummer - have previously appeared together in Shakespearean drama. This marks their first Dickens collaboration.
The older Plummer has performed "A Christmas Carol" as a one-man show nationwide for more than 30 years. The new two-man version is based on Dickens' own text from his reading tours of England and America.
The two Joe Plummers play all 37 parts from Scrooge to Tiny Tim.
The younger Plummer has just completed a run as Orlando in Shakespear's "As You Like It" at the Blue Heron Theatre off-Broadway.
