A Christmas Story: The Musical is the hilarious account of Ralphie Parker's desperate quest to ensure that the one thing he wants most in the world ends up under his Christmas tree: an official Red Ryder carbine-action 200-shot Range Model air rifle. Based on the beloved 1983 holiday movie, Tony winner John Rando (Urinetown) directs this delightful musical comedy, which scored three Tony nominations this year and features funny and heartfelt songs by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, with a faithful yet inventive book by Joseph Robinette. Young and old alike will delight in watching Ralphie's wacky family muddle through the Yuletide with heart, humor and one incredibly tacky leg lamp. Learn More

By turns intellectually dazzling and deeply moving, Copenhagen journeys through the realm of science and beyond.
On an autumn evening in 1941, two old friends, physicists Niels Bohr and Werner Heisenberg, met for the first time since Nazi Germany invaded Denmark the previous year. Both men knew the secrets of nuclear fission, but would they use that information to build an atomic bomb? Would Heisenberg build a bomb for Hitler to protect Germany from another defeat? Would Bohr risk what he fears most--a nuclear war--to stop an even greater evil? All these questions confront the ghosts of Heisenberg, Bohr and his wife, Margrethe, who have gathered to determine what they never managed to agree about in life: Why did Heisenberg come to Copenhagen that night? Relationships split like atoms and memories become as uncertain as Heisenberg’s famous principle as the three reconstruct the evening.
