The cast for this staged version of Jean Shepherd's sentimental tale of a 1940s Christmas is charming, almost loveable, and the technical elements impress in more ways than one. But PCS has given itself an uphill battle, asking the audience to forget beloved scenes and characters from the film that work much better in their original medium. Slight additions to the script—like that of the older Ralphie, played by the charismatic and grounded Darius Pierce—help to alleviate this issue, but the distraction of the subject matter inevitably takes over. Ultimately, the departure from the time-tested motion picture may have been in vain. NOAH DUNHAM
