Kerry O'Malley & Meredith Patterson in WHITE CHRISTMAS
White Christmas has booked a return engagement at Broadway’s Marquis Theatre. The holiday musical, based on the classic film and featuring songs by Irving Berlin, will play 61 performances beginning November 13 and ending January 3, 2010, directed by Walter Bobbie. Casting will be announced shortly.
White Christmas tells the story of two showbiz buddies who put on a show in a picturesque Vermont inn and find their perfect mates in the bargain. Set to the music of Irving Berlin, the show features a book by David Ives and Paul Blake. After playing at theaters around the country for several years, White Christmas had an initial Broadway run beginning in November 2008 and received Tony Award nominations for Randy Skinner’s choreography and Larry Blank’s orchestrations.
In addition to Skinner and Blank, the creative team includes Anna Louizos (set design), Carrie Robbins (costume design), Ken Billington (lighting design) and Acme Sound Partners (sound design).
White Christmas is produced by Kevin McCollum, John Gore, Tom McGrath, Paul Blake, The Producing Office, Dan Markley, Sonny Everett and Broadway Across America in association with Paramount Pictures.
A second White Christmas company will embark on a seven-city tour at Omaha's Orpheum Theatre on November 1, 2009. The production will continue on to Cincinnati, Ohio (Nov. 10-22), Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (Nov. 24-Dec. 6), East Lansing, Michigan (Dec. 9-13), St. Louis, Missouri (Dec. 15-27), Louisville, Kentucky (Dec. 29-Jan. 3, 2010), and Kansas City, Missouri (Jan. 5-10).
