I've never actually seen the film (gasp, pearl clutch, I know...), but I did see the second San Francisco incarnation and thought it was a lot of fun. It's perfectly appropriate for a limited run on Broadway.

I've seen a stage adaption, don't know if it was the same one, and it was *really* faithful. Tons of fun. However, this sounds stupid, but why are the Haynes sisters not both bleach blonde?! Disturbing, much?

I also saw the second San Francisco run and thought it was a great seasonal musical. Perfect for Broadway.

I personally find these golden era of musicals interesting relics of the past and they should stay there. Only shows like WSS seem to last through the ages. White Christmas, to me, is for the WWII generation. I think the story, musical arrangements, and choreography would all have to be reworked to suit today's audiences.

Plus "White Christmas" has to be one of my least favorite Christmas songs.

I haven't seen the movie either that I can remember, but a dinner theatre about an hour away from me puts it on every year, and everyone says that it's really good.

I'm going to see it next week in Det...I love the movie, so I'm pretty excited.

So I saw it, and it was some nice Christmas fluff, but it wasn't as good as the movie.
I enjoyed the guy who played Bob Wallace, and Betty Haynes was pretty good too.
Judy was just ok...Phil was lacking.

But overall, it was cute and fun. I liked it.

How is posting information about a show in a thread about it cluttering?

Let's not get snarky about people trying to do the right thing.

As my friend Mumsy would say "Let's play nice now."
