A Christmas Story, The Musical…

A Christmas Story

At a recent performance here of “A Christmas Story: The Musical!,” applause rippled through the 2,100-seat Fisher Theater when famous scenes from the film began to unfold, most notably a sequence in which one of the supporting characters gets his tongue stuck to an icy flagpole. During intermission, Frances Colucci, who owns the “Christmas Story” board game and watches the annual marathon on TBS, said taking her children to see the musical was a no-brainer.

“We know all the lines, so you can almost be participating in the show because you know what they’re going to say next,” she said in the lobby, where the gift shop was stocked with miniature night lights in the shape of leg lamps, a nod to one of the movie’s most recognizable props. (Havoc ensues when Ralphie’s father installs a giant lamp in the shape of a woman’s stockinged leg in the window of his family’s home.)

My favorite movie to watch for 24 hours straight every Christmas was made into a musical that’s hitting the Chicago Theatre from December 14-30.
