  • A Christmas Story: The Musical

It’s a desert out there. With the fall season over, the spring season a few weeks away, and most of the holiday shows already well along in their runs, there’s not much that’s new to review. Such pickin’s as there are include a late entry among the Loop yuletide shows, A Christmas Story: The Musical; Terry Horan’s solo sketch show, Displays of Affection; and a special edition of Barrel of Monkeys’ long-running That’s Weird, Grandma, which I’d definitely take a grammar-school-aged kid to see if I knew any.
