Guest Blogger: A Christmas Story
Ralphie Parker wants only one thing for Christmas:
An Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action 200-shot Range Model Air Rifle. A Christmas Story, The Musical is the hilarious account of Ralphie’s desperate quest to ensure that this most perfect of gifts ends up under his tree this Christmas. Directed by Tony®-winner John Rando, and choreographed by Warren Carlyle, this new Broadway musical is based on the classic 1983 movie, which itself was based on stories by legendary radio humorist Jean Shepard. With songs both funny and heartfelt by Benj Pasek & Justin Paul, and a faithful yet inventive book by Joseph Robinette, A Christmas Story captures holiday wonder with such deliciously wicked wit that it is sure to delight children and grown-ups alike. It’s the Christmas present that you’ll cherish all holiday long.
A CHRISTMAS STORY BLOG: Thanksgiving and a Performance on The View!
December 5, 2012
We had a great Thanksgiving Day. In the morning, we watched the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. How could we be in NYC and not go to the parade? Then we had Thanksgiving dinner with Erin Dilly, who plays my mother in the show, and her family at their home. It was a wonderful time. We had to have an early dinner though, because we had a performance that evening. It went well, the audience was great, a good ending to a great Thanksgiving Day! The weekend after Thanksgiving, my grandmother, aunt, and cousins visited us from North Carolina. They saw our show - A Christmas Story, the Musical! - twice and all loved it, from my grandmother who is 85 down to my youngest cousin who is 5. We also saw the Rockettes while they were here and had a backstage tour after the show, including visiting the camels who were a highlight of the living Nativity scene.

Being Ralphie is a lot of fun. Today my mom was taking a picture of me in front of the poster of me in the pink bunny suit at the entrance to the theater, and someone walking by said to my mom, "Wow, he looks a lot like the boy in that poster."
