The production, which is the latest incarnation of the 2000 musical, enjoyed a sell-out season at Leicester Curve, and the West End transfer sees many of its stars reprising their roles. The Telegraph called it a "glorious revival" while The Stage remarked that it was faultlessly “executed”.
The story follows two veterans in the wake of WWII. Together they decide to form a showbiz duo and to bring their love of music and dance to the stage. The iconic song "White Christmas", written by Berlin and a staple of every Christmastime since, features within the show. Other classic songs include Blue Skies and Sisters.
Returning to their highly acclaimed roles are Danny Mac (Sunset Boulevard) as Bob Wallace and Dan Burton (Gypsy) as Phil Davis. They are joined by a cast including Michael Brandon, Brenda Edwards, Martha Watson, Danielle Hope Betty Haynes and Clare Halse Judy Haynes.
Leicester Curve’s Artistic Director Nikolai Foster directs. Foster’s prior directorial credits include Annie and Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Stephen Mear provides choreography. A two-time Olivier Award-winner, his resume includes his work on Mary Poppins.
The piece features set design by Michael Taylor, costume design by Diego Pitarch, lighting design by Mark Henderson and sound design by Tom Marshall. Musical supervision comes from Stephen Brooker while orchestrations are by Larry Blank, with new musical arrangements thanks to Jason Carr.
Bedeck your Christmas with a definitive festive classic. See White Christmas during its limited season at London’s Dominion Theatre from 15 November 2019.
