The Made at Curve production comes to the West End after impressing in Leicester, where critics enthused about a 'faultessly executed', 'meltingly lovely' 'treat for the the eyes and ears', which offers 'pure escapism'.
With a songbooks of hits, including the titular 'White Christmas', the show is a festive classic, immortalised by Bing Crosby's crooning in the 1954 film. It follows two solidiers turned entertainers attempting to organise a largescale revue show in honour of their army general. Though a pair of attractive sisters and unseasonably warm weather provide some dramatic hi-jinks, ultimately the show must go on.
Like most Golden Age musicals, the emphasis is on wow-factor ensemble numbers more than nuanced narrative, but director Nikolai Foster celebrates this nostalgia in his revival.
Stage stalwart and Strictly Come Dancing star Danny Mac (Sunset Boulevards, On The Town, Wicked) and West End regular Dan Burton (Jersey Boys, Gypsy) reprise their roles after glowing reviews from the Leicester Curve, with further casting still to be announced.
