White Christmas Salt Lake City Tickets
Irving Berlin's White Christmas (White Christmas for short) is a holiday musical based on the 1954 Paramount Pictures film White Christmas written by Norman Krasna, Norman Panama and Melvin Frank. The story is about Bob Wallace and Phil Davis, two World War II U.S. Army buddies who form a successful song-and-dance duo after the war. The two of them end up following a sister act to their Christmas show at a lodge in Vermont. However, when they get to the lodge, they find it is in danger of going out of business due to bankruptcy. They learn that their highly respected former army commander owns the lodge, so they all band together to work and save the hotel.
Star-crossed romance, the bonds of friendship and loyalty, post-war optimism and a happy ending, transports audiences back to the sentimental 1940s. Blanket the sentimental story in great music and you’ve got White Christmas! It features the popular music and lyrics by Irving Berlin; with the book by David Ives and Paul Blake. It premiered in 2004 in San Francisco. Since then, the musical tours cities across the United States.
The stage adaptation of the musical revives old fashioned dance production numbers with energetic choreography and plenty of tap dancing. The score spotlights numerous favorites such as “Count Your Blessings,” “What Can You Do With a General,” “I’ve Got My Love to Keep Me Warm” and the title song.
While Berlin’s catchy tunes are reason alone to see this musical, there is so much else to take in - a talented cast, colorful sets, elaborate song-and-dance sequences and a charming blanket of “snow” that covers the auditorium at curtain call.
