BWW Reviews: A CHRISTMAS STORY: THE MUSICAL at the FOXBWW Reviews: A CHRISTMAS STORY: THE MUSICAL at the FOX
by Chris Gibson - Dec 20, 2014

I'd heard of Jean Shepherd's work as an author when I was younger, but my first true exposure to Him came in 1983 in a tiny, and mostly empty, movie theater where I sat and watched director Bob Clark's wonderful valentine to the late 1930's and early 1940's, A Christmas Story. I've since seen it go from sleeper to television staple, then to the stage in a theatrical version, and now I've had the opportunity to view it as musical. I must say, this endearingly hilarious account of young Ralphie Parker and his quest to own a Red Ryder BB Gun (here essayed by either Evan Gray and Colton Maurer, with Cal Alexander as younger brother, Randy) is still funny to me all these years later. The musical, which is currently playing the Fabulous Fox Theatre, is a twinkling Christmas delight, with pleasant and lively numbers that aim to enhance key moments that you'll recall from the original. This is fun for the whole family, and my son and I had a terrific time. (more...)
