A New Stage Adaptation of a Classic Musical
Roundabout Theatre Company presents Holiday Inn, a new stage adaptation of the Oscar-winning film about an entertainer who leaves the bright lights of show business for the peace and quiet of a Connecticut farmhouse.
From the Producers
Jim leaves the bright lights of show business behind to settle down on his farmhouse in Connecticut…but life just isn’t the same without a bit of song and dance. Jim’s luck takes a spectacular turn when he meets Linda, a spirited schoolteacher with talent to spare. Together they turn the farmhouse into a fabulous inn with dazzling performances to celebrate each holiday, from Thanksgiving to the Fourth of July. But when Jim’s best friend Ted tries to lure Linda away to be his new dance partner in Hollywood, will Jim be able to salvage his latest chance at love?

Holiday Inn – Opening Night
The musical, featuring music and lyrics by Irving Berlin, premiered at Connecticut’s Goodspeed Musicals in 2014.

1942 Film a Success
The original 1942 film had its premiere at the New York Paramount Theatre, starring Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire and received a 1943 Academy Award for Best Original Song (“White Christmas”), as well as Academy Award nominations for Best Original Story and Best Score.

The Choreography of Holiday Inn
Roundabout Theatre Company
What’s the Roundabout? One of the great nonprofit dreadnoughts of the New York theater scene, the Roundabout has three Broadway venues and an Off-Broadway stage in midtown. Prominent artists are usually engaged, significant work is usually done, and even at the smallest of the theaters, the work has the uniform quality that one would expect from such a large and prominent shop.

Critic’s Review from the Associated Press
Lively…the nostalgia factor is amped up with plenty of full, splashy dazzling dance numbers and lavish costumes. Jones has filled the cavernous stage with exuberant choreography, and the nimble, hardworking ensemble is airborne one minute, then dreamily waltzing the next. This tuneful confection of standards definitely harkens back to the golden age of musicals.
