A Christmas Story: The Musical, which received rave reviews on its Broadway run, is based on the movie classic that runs round-the-clock on television every Christmas.

Rebuffed at every turn with a similar echoing response, Ralphie plots numerous schemes to achieve his desperate desire for the coveted BB gun. All the iconic scenes from the movie are here: Ralphie's friend, Flick, getting his tongue stuck to the flagpole; his brother, Randy, getting dressed in his snowsuit; the bullies, Farkus and Dill; the leg lamp award; the bunny suit; the Chinese restaurant; Christmas dinner; and many others. The delightfully versatile score ranges from gentle ballads to show-stopping full-ensemble numbers such as "Ralphie to the Rescue!" "A Major Award," "Sticky Situation," "Up on Santa's Lap," "Somewhere Hovering Over Indiana" and the inevitable "You'll Shoot Your Eye Out!" A Christmas Story: The Musical will bring an exciting new dimension to those who have seen the movie and will certainly stand on its own for those who haven't.

Nabucco  
Deaf West Theatre Nabucco
 
A king driven mad. A bloodthirsty princess usurping power. A group of defenseless refugees struggling to fight back against their oppressors. If you think this sounds like something out of Game of Thrones you wouldn't be wrong -- but this epic drama full of backstabbing, violence and palace intrigue is actually Verdi's acclaimed opera Nabucco. Thaddeus Strassberger's production at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Los Angeles features opera superstar (and Three Tenors member) Plácido Domingo as the mad king Nabucco, whose campaign to drive the Jews from Babylon turns his family against itself. Nabucco doesn't feature any dragons, but it does include the Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves -- one of opera's most famous songs, which was once in the running to be Italy's national anthem.

Craving a little splash of vodka in your Christmas cheer? Prefer watching Bad Santa over It's a Wonderful Life? Think naughty > nice? David Sedaris sympathizes.

If you need a break from a crazy family, mall madness or cloying carols, Patrick Censoplano dons the candy-cane tights for a heaping dose of (anti)holiday hilarity in The Santaland Diaries at The Other Space at Santa Monica Playhouse. Arrive half an hour early for a little extra cheer -- your ticket includes a pre-show toast with a glass of champagne or nonalcoholic eggnog.
