Photo Coverage: A CHRISTMAS STORY Returns to NYC! Inside the Opening Night Curtain Call

A Christmas Story, The Musical just arrived at The Theater at Madison Square Garden, where it opened last night, December 12, 2013. BroadwayWorld was there for all of the festivities and you can check out phtoos from the curtain call below!

Reprising their roles are Dan Lauria (Lombardi, "The Wonder Years," "Sullivan and Son") as Jean Shepherd, John Bolton(Spamalot, Contact, Titanic, "Boardwalk Empire," "Gossip Girl') as the Old Man, Tony Award nominee Erin Dilly (Nice Work if You Can Get It, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang) as Mother and Caroline O'Connor (Chicago, Moulin Rouge) as school teacher Miss Shields. Eli Tokash (Mary Poppins) plays Ralphie at certain perforances, Noah Baird as little brother Randy, andJake Lucas (Newsies, Far From Heaven), donning the famous spectacles will take on the lead role of Ralphie.

The story takes place in 1940's Indiana, where 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 tripledog-dare to lick a freezing flagpole are just a few of the obstacles that stand between Ralphie and his Christmas dream. Co-produced by the film's original Ralphie, Peter Billingsley, A Christmas Story, TheMusical is musical comedy entertainment that captures a simpler time in America with delicious wit and a heart of gold.
