A Christmas Story, the Musical

Email a Friend

Dan Lauria, who stars in “A Christmas Story, the Musical,” and Irwin Zwilling, Jean Shepherd’s best friend who holds the rights to his work, talk about turning story from a movie classic to a Broadway musical spectacular. Set in 1940s Indiana, 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. It’s playing through December 30 at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre.
