‘A Christmas Story Live!’ Included A Hanukkah Song & Twitter Loved It

added a welcome bit of inclusivity from the classic movie with a big, jazzy Hanukkah number, and it became the biggest hit of the night! In the biggest divergence from the 1983 Christmas classic, Fox’s live musical adaptation threw in a whole number for the side character of Raphie’s friend’s mom, Mrs. Schwartz, and Ana Gasteyer completely destroyed it. Viewers were quick to note that Ana Gasteyer’s Hanukkah song in was the standout moment in the show.

Ana Gasteyer’s breakout Hanukkah number was the most surprising and arguable most exciting part of the entire three-hour special. All of the other songs in the live musical event were based on the 2009 Broadway show (written by Pasek & Paul, the buzzy team behind recent smashes and ), but the Hanukkah number was not in that original musical.

Gasteyer has been a theater star for nearly two decades now, having starred as Elphaba in and Mimi Schwinn in . Theater fans were quick to remind the uninitiated that Ana Gasteyer has proven her musical talents long before :

And in case her past theater credits weren’t enough to prove her amazing voice, Ana Gasteyer also released an album full of big jazz standards in 2014 called . If you were a fan of Gasteyer’s bombastic “Market for a Miracle” performance in , then may I also recommend that you give her full-throated cover of the jazz track “One Mint Julep” a listen as well — it served as the lead single off and also came with a really fun music video.

I guess this year, finally became thanks to Ana Gasteyer’s superb performance. Gasteyer said that she was happy about the song’s inclusion since in the original movie, Ralphie never really confronted the lie he told that got his friend Schwartz in trouble with his mother, and “Market for a Miracle” let that moment happen.
