Return to the musical you’ve been dreaming of. Make your days merry and bright by warming to this unforgettable musical about love and friendship. Based on the classic holiday film, this tap-dancing delight brims with tunes—including “Sisters,” and the ever-popular “White Christmas”—that will fill you with the joy of the season.
Irving Berlin wrote the song “White Christmas” for the 1942 movie Holiday Inn and it won the Academy Award that year for Best Song. Bing Crosby sang it in that movie, as well as the film version of White Christmas in 1954. His recording has sold over 30 million copies and is still one of the best-selling singles in the world. The musical version of the film was first produced in San Francisco in 2004. After a holiday season run on Broadway in 2009, it received two Tony Award nominations and six Drama Desk Award nominations.
