Break a Leg (Lamp)

Play House delivers staged account of holiday cult flick.


Unless you've been living in a cave — and your cave doesn't have cable — you've seen the cinematic version of A Christmas Story. You may have even traipsed through the Tremont house where scenes of Ralphie, his BB gun, and the leg lamp were shot. The Cleveland Play House is now staging the film's theatrical cousin. "It's wonderful to see how it has become Cleveland's new holiday tradition," says Michael Bloom, the theater's artistic director. "It's always gratifying to be able to produce plays that have special meaning for our local audience." Shoot your eye out at 3 and 7:30 p.m. Saturdays, 2 p.m. Sundays, 7:30 p.m. Wednesdays and Fridays, and 1:30 and 7:30 p.m. Thursdays through Sunday, December 23, at Bolton Theatre, 8500 Euclid Avenue. Tickets are $25 to $47. Call 216-795-7000 or visit
