Simon Callow as Charles Dickens takes his April 25 opening night bow at the Belasco in The Mystery of Charles Dickens.

Callow plays the celebrated Victorian novelist, as well as more than 40 of his creations, including the jovial Mr. Micawber ("David Copperfield"), besotted nurse Mrs. Gamp ("Martin Chuzzlewit"), murderous villian Bill Sikes ("Oliver Twist") and the deluded Miss Havisham ("Great Expectations"). Performing without a mike, Callow makes his Broadway acting debut in Dickens.
