Christmas Lights

Leg lamps have all the fun. If you had to recall one thing about the film A Christmas Story, odds are good that you’d remember that unsightly, heeled, fishnet-wearing (and, OK, oddly sexy) light-up limb.

Lighting might overshadow the tale of the adorable, four-eyed Ralphie Parker, but that’s all right. He’s used to it. After all, the kid’s accustomed to dealing with brace-faced bullies, frozen flagpoles, surly Santas, and family members who think bunny pajamas are an acceptable gift. Our protagonist is told he can’t even handle a BB gun. Catch Phoenix Theatre’s stage adaptation of the comedic Christmas classic.
