“A Christmas Story, the Musical”: Good Company Players brings back last year’s popular holiday title. From last year’s review: “The warm and invigorating production features most of the movie’s video-clip-worthy pop-culture moments, with just about every anticipated comic high point from the revered film represented. A musical’s greatest strength is that it can take us places emotionally and comically that sometimes mere words can’t reach. This title, which opened on Broadway in 2012, is both wry and rousing, a nice combination.”
