Irving Berlin’s White Christmas, the stage adaptation of the beloved classic film, came through Broadway In Chicago’s Cadillac Palace Theatre for a limited one-week engagement this holiday season. It tells the story of a song-and-dance team putting on a show in a magical Vermont inn. They fall for a stunning sister act in the process.

Full of dancing, laughter and some of the greatest songs ever written, including “Count Your Blessings Instead of Sheep,” “Happy Holiday,” “Sisters,” “Blue Skies,” and the unforgettable title song, Irving Berlin’S White Christmas proved to be a merry and bright experience for the entire family! It is a sparkly holiday card come to life, and about as close as one can get to living inside a snow globe.

The show features timeless music and lyrics by Irving Berlin with book by David Ives and Paul Blake. It is based upon the Paramount Pictures film written for the screen by Norman Krasna, Norman Panama and Melvin Frank. Fans of the film will most certainly sing along, however, the musical’s book is different, and some numbers will surprise even the die hards.
