Maya Rudolph, Jane Krakowski, Ana Gasteyer Put the "Live" in A Christmas Story Live!

What does it take to create a musical for television? The stars fill us in.

The holiday season kicks into high gear with Fox's December 17 broadcast of A Christmas Story Live! Blending elements from the beloved film and Benj Pasek, Justin Paul, and Joseph Robinette's Tony-nominated Broadway musical, the three-hour production features a number of performers well-versed in the live aspect: Saturday Night Live veterans Maya Rudolph and Ana Gasteyer, Tony winners Jane Krakowski and Matthew Broderick, and more. As the cast and creative team gets ready to present this live event across the country, they chatted with TheaterMania about bringing these iconic characters to the small screen, dancing leg lamps and all.
