A Little Bit of Broadway

A Christmas Story

It’s 1940’s Indiana, and Ralphie only wants one thing for Christmas – an Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action 200-shot Range Model Air Rifle.  The story by Jean Shepherd was made into a movie in 1983 which has become a holiday classic.  And now it is on the Broadway stage, just in time for Christmas.  It started life in 2010 in Seattle, and is now on Broadway in a limited run. Music and lyrics are by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.  

 If you get to New York by December 30, take the opportunity to follow Ralphie’s quest to get the most perfect Christmas gift ever.

We have a few minutes till Marian McPartland and Piano Jazz celebrates their Piano Jazz Christmas show, so let's play some holiday classics!
