“A jolly live extravaganza that only Scrooges can resist.” — New York Magazine

Based on the beloved, timeless film, this heartwarming musical adaptation features seventeen Irving Berlin songs. Veterans Bob Wallace (portrayed by Bing Crosby in the film) and Phil Davis (Danny Kaye) have a successful song-and-dance act after World War II. With romance in mind, the two follow a duo of beautiful singing sisters en route to their Christmas show at a Vermont lodge, which just happens to be owned by Bob and Phil’s former Army commander. The dazzling score features well known standards including Blue Skies, I Love A Piano, How Deep Is the Ocean and the perennial favorite, WHITE CHRISTMAS. December is the season for WHITE CHRISTMAS, an uplifting musical.
