NEW YORK (AP) - Dan Lauria will once again lead the cast of the Tony Award-nominated "A Christmas Story, the Musical" when it tours the Northeast this winter.
Producers on Wednesday announced that "The Wonder Years" veteran will return to narrate the zaniness when the musical plays The Bushnell in Hartford, Conn., from Nov. 12-17, and The Wang Theatre in Boston from Nov. 20-Dec. 8, and The Theater at Madison Square Garden from Dec. 11-29.
Says Lauria: "I don't know too many actors who can say, 'I've played the Garden.' I'm excited about it."
Like the film, the musical features a menacing school bully, an annoying kid brother, a lace-stocking-clad leg lamp, a bright pink bunny suit and a kid who gets his tongue stuck to a frozen flagpole.
