Critic Reviews for A Christmas Story Live!

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (9) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (8)

  • While writers conceded it covered every important part of the film, it didn't deliver it in the same package - in fact, it might have been presented a little too perfectly.

    May 30, 2018 | Full Review…
  • "A Christmas Story Live!" lacked the feeling of a piece of theater unfolding in front of the audience's eyes in real time, like a slick magic trick.

  • If this live musical craze continues, can I request a follow-up from this same creative team?

    December 18, 2017 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
  • Packed too densely with needless smarm and excess songs, A Christmas Story Live stretched itself to three precisely executed but tedious hours.

    December 18, 2017 | Full Review…
  • It is a risky business turning a near-perfect thing into a somewhat less-perfect thing, but it feels churlish to cavil about so much hard work done in a celebratory spirit.

    December 18, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Although the cast is quite appealing and the show well staged (with hardly a hiccup or blooper), it couldn't liven up the flat material. A three-hour runtime made it a slog, and the musical was overstuffed with songs.
