A CHRISTMAS STORY Arkansas Rep
"Funny and feel-good -- brilliant as a leg lamp gleaming in a window... Directed by Mark Shanahan, the cast adeptly fulfills its nearly impossible task: breathing new life into a story everyone knows... While much of the show is intended to tickle, a few moments are downright tender. Did we really just get teary at our 3,294th viewing of A Christmas Story?"
"Perfectly cast and expertly directed by Mark Shanahan, The Rep's "A Christmas Story" turns back the clock, turns up the nostalgia and sets you down in the living room of this iconic holiday tale, allowing you to experience it in the most extraordinary way."
"Top notch ! A stellar time! A staggering attention to detail .... The cast was perfect.... The stage adaptation of the classic, directed by Mark Shanahan... is well-worth suspending your holiday shopping for a couple of hours — and stealing a few of Santa's dollars — to get to see this fabulous show. -- The Ark Times
