About A Christmas Story , The Musical:

America's #1 holiday movie came to hilarious life onstage when A Christmas Story, The Musical launched a tour in 2011 that culminated in a critically successful run in Chicago.  The musical features a bright holiday score by composer/lyricist team Benj Pasek and Justin Paul and a witty book by Joseph Robinette based on the writings of radio humorist Jean Shepherd and the 1983 holiday film favorite. Tony Award winner John Rando ( Urinetown) directs the production with Warren Carlyle ( Chaplin, Follies, An Evening With Hugh Jackman) choreographing.

The story from a cherished movie classic that's enchanted millions is now a musical spectacular. In 1940's Indiana, 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 triple-dog-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, The Musical is holiday entertainment that captures a simpler time in America with delicious wit and a heart of gold.

A Christmas Story, The Musical plays a limited holiday engagement on Broadway through December 30 at Lunt-Fontanne Theatre (205 West 46 th Street). Opening night is Monday, November 19 at 6pm. See the performance schedule below. Tickets are $49 - $159 may be purchased at, (877) 250-2929, or in person at the Lunt-Fontanne Theater Box Office.    Group Tickets (12+) range from $39 - $159 and are available by calling Group Sales Box Office/, 1-800-BROADWAY. Please visit for more information.
