The Premiere of A Christmas Story Live!

The Premiere of A Christmas Story Live! The Premiere of A Christmas Story Live!
Hannah Rogers | 19 December, 2017, 01:35

The kid who played Ralph, Andy Walken, was adorable and talented and completely mastered Ralph's habit of talking quickly when he was excited.

I realize that the star of A Christmas Story is Ralphie, but I am for the two SNL legends: Maya Rudolph as Mother Parker and Ana Gasteyer as Mrs. Schwartz.

There was an expanded role for Jane Krakowski's teacher, Miss Shields - a "Bugsy Malone" fantasy number was her big musical moment - and non-singing, non-dancing small turns from as a Christmas tree salesman (and later as the proprietor of a Chinese restaurant), David Alan Grier as a department store Santa and Fred Armisen as his helper.

Pretty cool, eh? And, that includes A Christmas Story Live. Flawless set transitions, wonderful camera movements, and strong choreography. "The New York Times' Noel Murray called it a "letdown", while USA Today's Kelly Lawler took aim at one of the film's most iconic lines in the headline, "'A Christmas Story Live!' shoots its own eye out'".

It is a risky business turning a near-perfect thing into a somewhat less-perfect thing, but it feels churlish to cavil about so much hard work done in a celebratory spirit. "I've learned so much from the [veteran actors in the production], they're absolutely wonderful to work with".

When is A Christmas Story Live! airing? I do understand that if you weren't expecting a musical, you may have been confused and a little disappointed, but hopefully the well-done musical numbers were good enough to get you through it. I think the fact that he's the writer and is basing it on his child-hood is why he is so ideal as narrator.

Tonight, A Christmas Story Live! is airing on Fox and it's one of the big holiday events of the year. Something tells us we'll be seeing LOTS more of Andy once his live performance is over!
