One of the most famous lines in the film A Christmas Story is everyone's response to Ralphie when he requests a BB gun for Christmas: "You'll shoot your eye out." When it came time for Benj Pasek and Justin Paul to create a musical version of the movie, they turned this one bit of dialogue into a massive tap number. In Fox's A Christmas Story Live!, Jane Krakowski will take center stage, but on Broadway, it was Anastasia star Caroline O'Connor plus a pint-sized, scene-stealing tap dance whiz named Luke Spring. Check it out below before the show airs on December 17.
