Day 108: See ‘A Christmas Story’ live
December 20, 2010 § Leave a comment
After watching a live performance of “A Christmas Story” at Portland Center Stage today, I’m determined to have a pair of these babies standing upon our bedside tables before the end of the year. Oh leg lamp, oh leg lamp, thy thighs so full and shapely!
This play impressively nailed all the funniest parts of the plot, and there are a number of them, while still managing to be fresh and exciting. Everything from the pink bunny pajamas to the “Oh fffffffffuuuuuuudddddddgggggeeeee!” during the tire change had me cracking up as if the story was completely new to me. I was particularly impressed with the set – a two story house that was so detailed that it looked like an exact model of the home from the movie.
Nothing beats live theater during the holiday season, and Portland Center Stage always manages to put on the most entertaining shows. The Old Armory Theater, with its classy decorations and modern art, is an absolutely awesome venue. Besides, it’s right next door to the Deschutes Brewery.
I leave you with a classic “Christmas Story” clip, this one from the film.
