JUST LIKE THAT! 45 MINUTES!!! To get us in the holiday groove and warmed up for FOX’s A Christmas Story Live, here is B-Roll footage from the original Broadway production of A Christmas Story, the Musical (which this tonight’s live presentation is based off on).
The original Broadway cast featured…
Dan Lauria as “Jean Shepherd” (aka “The Narrator” / “Old Ralphie”,
John Bolton as “Mr. Parker”,
Helpmann Award winner Caroline O’Connor as “Miss Shields”,
Tony Award nominee Erin Dilly as “Mrs. Parker”,
Zac Ballard as “Randy”,
and Johnny Rabe and Joe West alternating the lead role of “Ralphie Parker”.
Following an acclaimed run at The 5th Avenue Theatre in Seattle, A CHRISTMAS STORY THE MUSICAL premiered on Broadway in 2012 at the Lunt Fontanne Theatre for a strictly limited holiday engagement of 66 performances. The show was nominated for only 3 Tony Awards in 2013 including Best Musical but lost all it’s categories. However, due to the original Broadway engagement did so well, it returned to NYC that same year of 2013 playing The Theater at Madison Square Garden (The Garden) for that same amount of performances. The musical continues to play in Regional Theatres across the country.
