A Diva's Christmas Carol
Contemporary adaptation of Charles Dickens' story, "A Christmas Carol." The story focuses on an egomaniacal singer named Ebony, a former member of a girl group, whose lack of the spirit of Christmas brings on supernatural visitations.
Superstar singer Ebony decides at the end of a long European tour that she wants to headline a Christmas day charity show in New York City. While her overworked manager, Bob Cratchett, and her touring crew balk at the added inconvenience of being away from their own families for the holiday, Ebony tells Bob that "Christmas is a marketing machine we can't ignore." At her luxury suite on Christmas Eve, Ebony rejects an invitation from her niece, Olivia, to spend some time with her family. A loud rap on the door signals a frightening appearance by the ghost of Marli Jacob, Ebony's late former singing partner, who warns the diva that her loss of holiday spirit will mean the loss of her soul. According to Marli, Ebony has one chance to turn her life around, and that chance will come tonight when she's visited by three spirits, the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future.
