BROADWAY: A Christmas Story, The Musical

by Staś Kmieć
    This year, the adaptation of the iconic film about a boy who wants a BB gun for Christmas is coming to Broadway!  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.

   The award-winning musical theatre composing teamYou +1'd this publicly. Undo of Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (known as Pasek and Paul) has been developing the show for the past few years.  Now the musical is on “The Great White Way,” running through December 30 at Broadway's Lunt-Fontanne Theatre.

   The cast includes Dan Lauria (TV’s The Wonder Years), Tony Award nominee Erin Dilly, and Eddie Korbich as Santa Claus.   The creative team of Tony Award-winning director John Rando, and choreographer Warren Carlisle bring this beloved movie to the Broadway stage.
