‘A Christmas Story, The Musical’s’ revival a flawless spectacle of comic brilliance

"It's better than the movie." You've heard the refrain before, usually as a term of lament for a much beloved book subjected to a less than loving film adaptation.

Much to like about Mary Poppins despite a shaky start | Review

There's trouble at 17 Cherry Tree Lane and it's not Mary Poppins. The Village Theatre's opening night production of the popular children's story had several magical moments, including flying people, kites and a chimney sweep dancing on the ceiling. But many of those fell flat as numerous miscues, both musical and spoken, clumsy stage blocking and stagehands appearing in plain view took audience members out of the story. By the time you read this I'm sure both cast and crew will have ironed out the majority of its timing issues, taking copious amounts of sugar to help the medicine go down, which is why I'm throughly encouraging people to see this production.
