I'm Dreaming Of A...
White Christmas? Production Contract? National Tour? All of the above!
I'm very excited and honored to be joining the 2009 production of Irving Berlin's White Christmas. This charming show, based on the 1954 movie, has been produced seasonally for the past six years in cities like St. Paul, Toronto, Detroit, Boston, L.A., and (for the last two years) on Broadway in New York. This year they've put together the first National Touring Production, and I'm thrilled to be a part of it. Not only is it a fantastic show, but it's also my first chance to work with choreographer Randy Skinner and director Walter Bobbie, so I'm having a blast.
In addition to dancing like crazy in the ensemble, I'll also be understudying my friend David Elder in the role of Phil Davis. I've even got some guaranteed dates to go on as Phil in Cincinnati: November 13th (8 p.m.), 14th (8 p.m.), and 15th (1 p.m.).
We opened this week in Omaha, and the reviews are already raves. Bob Fischbach of the Omaha World-Herald says, "It's great dancing, great singing, a great score by you know who, and it has great performers in all the featured roles. Hats off to them... and especially to a young, attractive, high-energy chorus. It's a great big hit with Omaha audiences."
