'A Christmas Story' on stage? Naddafinga!
Lemme guess. You'll get your eye shot out if you miss the stage production of A Christmas Story: The Musical. (Actually, depending how good it is, maybe I'd volunteer to shoot my eyes out first.)
Peter Billingsley, aka "Ralphie" from the original 1983 movie, is producing a musical version of the film for the Seattle stage, according to Slashfilm.com. Could it actually become a national tour? That's what Ralphie is hoping for.
BTW, in case you're wondering what Billingsley has been up to lately, let me point you in the direction of the movie Couple's Retreat, starrring Vince Vaughn and Jon Favreau. Critics hated it, but I kinda enjoyed it. (Any chance for that Stuck in the '80s interview now, Ralphie?)
