Great Lakes & Upper South in the News: "A 'Christmas Story' Musical? Sing Out, Ralphie!" from NPR

Background: The movie is based on the the screenwriter's childhood in Hammond, IN.  The movie was filmed in a Cleveland neighborhood (the home is available to tour).  The play was in Detroit until 27 November and will be in Chicago from 14-30 December.  

"Every year at this time, families in search of child-friendly holiday entertainment buy their tickets for productions of A Christmas Carol and The Nutcracker. It's a lucrative market, and commercial producers are always looking for the next big Broadway-style holiday show that might join that small group of classic favorites. (The Grinch musical, anyone?)

This year, A Christmas Story: The Musical! will take its shot. A stage version of the iconic 1983 movie is on a five-city tour, with dreams of playing Broadway next year."
