I’ve been lucky enough to take in a couple of great Christmas-time shows this season and I wanted to pass along my reviews. First, a couple of weeks ago, I went to see A Christmas Story at the Repertory Theater of St. Louis. If you’re a fan of this iconic 80s Christmas movie, then you will love this live version. All the best scenes are recreated to great comedic effect, and that the extensive narration from the film is delivered live by an actor on stage is the most impressive part — that is a lot of monologues to memorize.
Last night we went to see Irving Berlin’s White Christmas at the Fabulous Fox. This was a great show too. Outstanding musical numbers and dance routines, fabulous period costumes, and a talented ensemble cast. This one is highly recommended as well.
