New This Week:
|A Christmas Story: the Musical|
My take: The film on which this musical is based has always been a favorite of mine, as is the autobiographical Jean Shepherd novel "In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash," that was the basis for the movie. I'm happy to see that it has apparently survived the transition to the musical stage with its heart and soul intact. In her review for KDHX, Tina Farmer says the show is "a rollicking, song-filled ride...The show succeeds on so many levels and the cast delivers an engaging, heartwarming tale that leaves the audience smiling." Malcom Gay at the Riverfront Times concurs; "as Ralphie unpacks that final present," he writes, "this heartwarming show reveals itself as the gift that it is."
