Based on the classic 1954 film Nikolai Foster’s production will play at the Dominion Theatre from the 15th November.
The Curve Leicester’s production, directed by Nikolai Foster will be heading to the West End this Christmas, starring Danny Mac (Sunset Boulevard) and Dan Burton (Gypsy) – who will be reprising their roles as Bob Wallace and Phil Davis. Further casting for the production has yet to be announced.
White Christmas follows the tale of two friends in the army during World War II, Bob and Phil. As the war ends, Phil convinces Bob, a former Broadway star, to team up as a performing duo; a pact which they fulfill with much success in the coming years. The duo soon team up with a pair of siblings, Betty and Judy, who auditioned for their act after seeming encouragement from the men’s former sergeant. Just when they start to fall for their female counterparts; trouble occurs when the girls have to flee their crazed landlord who is trying to get the pair arrested and forcing them all to retreat to a lodge which is in trouble financially – can the four of them save it from financial ruin?
The 2000 musical features a book by David Ives and Paul Blake as well as the classic Irving Berlin song ‘White Christmas’. Meanwhile, the rest of the creative team for the production also includes choreography by Stephen Mear with set design by Michael Taylor and costume design by Diego Pitarch. Musical supervision is by Stephen Brooker, lighting design by Mark Henderson and sound design by Tom Marshall. Orchestrations are by Larry Blank with new musical arrangements by Jason Carr.
White Christmas will play at the Dominion Theatre from the 15th November until the 4th January. To book tickets click here or visit: See Tickets, Theatre Tickets Direct.co.uk, Love Theatre.com, From the Box Office and Encore Tickets .
