EXCLUSIVE: A Christmas Story Songwriters Preview "Red Ryder Carbine Action BB Gun"

A Christmas Story's songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul joined Playbill in studio for an exclusive look at the creative process surrounding one of the show's most memorable tunes. As Justin Paul mans the piano, Benj Pasek assumes the role of the show's young protagonist, Ralphie, as they perform "Red Ryder Carbine Action BB Gun." The song — showing his fantasy of becoming a heroic cowboy, admired by all — is a celebration of the one must-have gift at the top of Ralphie's Christmas list.
