A Christmas Story
by Bill Mann
Tuesday, December 18, 2007
4.0
My wife and I saw the performance on Sunday and we were charmed by the show. Several years ago a movie was made from this script or vice versa but the movie fell short of this production. Rebecca Coffee did a wonderful job of casting and directing this production, she had insight into an era that was before her time and she has put in little touches that bring back memories of a time when we were more inocent. Little boys grown old will find a warm inner glow and a tear in their eyes from seeing so many of their own experiences relived in front of them on stage. I broke up in the first scene when the mother served oatmeal, not the instant kind, but the old fashoned, stick to your ribs and anything else oatmeal. I could name all the actors in this show and praise them for a great job, but that would just make this review longer and I don't type or spell that well(as you can see) so I will just say try to not miss this wonderfully entertaining and heart warming show.
