Coming to TV December 17th:

A Christmas Story Live

Inspired by the holiday classic film A Christmas Story and the Tony-nominated Broadway musical A Christmas Story: The Musical, this season’s live musical television event comes to FoxTV  December 17 at 7 pm.

All Ralphie wants for Christmas is a BB gun*, and in the days counting down to December 25, Ralphie and his friends get into all kinds of trouble—including run-ins with a bully, getting his tongue stuck to a flagpole, and more.    (* please note… Mrs. M DEFINITELY does not agree with the concept of BB guns….this story comes from a very different place and time.)

 Tony, Golden Globe, and Oscar winners Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (Dear Evan HansenLa La Land, and the upcoming new movie, The Greatest Showman) will also write several new songs for the live television event to supplement their musical’s original score.  The original Broadway musical earned six Drama Desk nominations and three Tony nominations: Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical for Joseph Robinette, and Best Original Score for Pasek and Paul.          https://www.fox.com/a-christmas-story-live/
