Broadway’s A Christmas Story, The Musical officially opens at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre on November 7th. Based on the the classic 1983 film, the musical will play a limited holiday engagement through December 30.
A Christmas Story, the Musical! launched a five-city U.S. tour last holiday season and was warmly embraced by critics nationwide. The score includes such songs as “Red Ryder,” “Ralphie to the Rescue,” “A Major Award” and “You’ll Shoot Your Eye Out.” Though well-reviewed, this melodic tuner has been revised a bit since the tour, according to producer Roy Miller. The creative team has re-explored and fine-tuned some of the material, and the physical production will be larger and more expansive, taking the new musical “to a new level.”
A Christmas Story, the Musical! Story
In 1940′s Indiana, a bespectacled boy named Ralphie has a big imagination and one wish for Christmas—a Red Ryder BB Gun. A kooky leg lamp, outrageous pink bunny pajamas, a cranky department store Santa, and a triple-dog-dare to lick a freezing flagpole are just a few of the obstacles that stand between Ralphie and his Christmas dream. A Christmas Story, The Musical! is holiday entertainment that captures a simpler time in America with delicious wit and a heart of gold.
