Fox Will Stage Live 'A Christmas Story' Musical

Fox just announced that the network will produce a live production of A Christmas Story: The Musical this holiday season!

The musical version of the classic movie has an original score written by Oscar winners Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, who won the Academy Award for Best Original Song this year for their work on La La Land.

The songwriters also have a chance at winning a Tony Award this year for their new musical Dear Evan Hansen. They are set to write new songs for the televised version of A Christmas Story, making them eligible for awards at the 2018 Emmys.

Next year, the duo will have chances at being nominated for and possibly winning Grammys as well, potentially sealing an EGOT in record time!

A Christmas Story: The Musical will air on Fox this December!
