"We Triple Dog Dare You To Find A More Entertaining New York Holiday Musical"
Endless holiday fun comes to New York City as A Christmas Story: The Musical makes its Broadway debut in a limited run at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre. BestofNewYork.com has great tickets available for this production based on the timeless holiday film. A Christmas Story tells the tale of Ralphie Parker, who desperately wants an Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action 200-shot Range Model Air Rifle more than anything else for Christmas. Ralphie goes to hilarious lengths to make his dream present become a reality. It’s a film that’s captured what it’s like to want a gift so desperately during the holidays, now destined to do the same on the Great White Way.
A Christmas Story has delighted families for years as a holiday staple. Now legendary radio humorist Jean Shepherd’s semi-fictional anecdotes from his collection of short stories about his youth called “In God We Trust: All Others Pay Cash” gets a faithful and inventive adaptation in a book by Joseph Robinette. Tony Award-winner John Rando (Urinetown) directs this musical with funny and heartfelt songs penned by the talented writing team of Benj Pasek and Justin Paul. Dan Lauria (Lombardi, The Wonder Years) portrays Shepherd, narrating the story as newcomer Johnny Rabe stars as Ralphie. You won’t need a Little Orphan Annie Secret Society decoder pin to figure out this is one New York production the whole family will love!
This is the absolute perfect musical for everyone in the family, and it’s even better with tickets from BestofNewYork.com. Kids will love seeing a show where a nine-year old is the protagonist with the desire of having the big toy of that Christmas season. Parents will enjoy seeing holiday classic told live, evoking memories of their own childhood holiday wishes. This NYC production captures all the unforgettable scenes from the film. So you’ll see the Old Man’s “major award” leg lamp, Flick getting his tongue frozen to the flag pole after Schwartz’s triple dog dare, Ralphie’s gift of a pink bunny suit from his Aunt Clara and much more. The jokes are endless and will have the whole crew laughing long after leaving the theater.
