A Christmas Story, The Musical. This is one of my all time favorite Christmas movies that I have seen dozens of times. It seemed to me that it would be a herculean task to translate it into a musical. How could they possibly recreate the poignant messages, humor and timeless excitement, hopes, fears and imaginings of childhood on one single stage?
Benj Pasek and Justin Paul superseded all expectations. The tunes were brilliant, the stage scenes and costuming were concise and sublime, spilling out into the ticket booth where the infamous "leg lamp" was highlighted. Each actor played their part with perfect zeal. This was a great opportunity for child actors to showcase their talents and they, too, superseded expectations. Even the dog actor that appeared at one point oozed with professionalism.
