You Can Soon Experience 'A Christmas Story Live!' Watch Party at Tremont's Christmas Story House


[image-1]Following in the footsteps of Grease and Rocky Horror Picture Show, A Christmas Story is the latest Broadway show to receive the live TV musical treatment on FOX. But rather than just watch the musical at home come Dec. 17., Clevelanders are invited to experience the extravaganza outside Tremont's own A Christmas Story House and Museum in the cold.

The free public block party begins at 5 p.m. with a viewing of the classic 1983 Christmas film, followed by the live musical, which stars Maya Rudolph, Jane Krakowski and Matthew Broderick, at 7 p.m. Both will be projected onto two large inflatable screens, as viewers — presumably dressed up in bunny pajamas — watch on their own blankets and chairs. Expect food trucks and Jack Frost Donuts as well.

Parking won't be easy to find, but Lolly the Trolley is scheduled to pick up watch party attendees at an off-site lot throughout the evening.

For those who feel the need to stay out late, The Rowley Inn across the street is hosting an after party. They'll serve plenty of Ovaltine, as well as slightly stronger beverages.
