I just dumped the guy I was seeing so it was the perfect night to get to see Irving Berlin’s White Christmas. Unlike Jekyll and Hyde which was just at the Kennedy Center, I was tearing and balling because this show was absolutely amazing. Even when the dancers were a bit out of sync, they were smiling and everyone was loving it. The show was phenomenal and is one of the only ones I will ever give 5 stars to.
From the minute the show starts in World War 2 when the characters are talking about Christmas and performing for their troops, you fall in love with the show. From the whistles, the singing and the bad jokes that make you laugh, you are instantly drawn in. Shows like Wicked or Spiderman need a ton of special effects to make an audience fall in love with them. Shows like Irving Berlin’s White Christmas rely on quality acting, dancing and a cast that can bring you into their own time and make you feel everything they are feeling.
From the songs like “Falling out of Love Can Be Fun” to “White Christmas”, you are instantly brought to Vermont in the 1950’s. The characters are perfect, the Actors are all amazing and everyone continued to feed off of each other and make the show amazing. Whether you love Bob and Betty or the sisters or anyone else, you will feel like you are part of the cast. Everyone did an amazing job, the dancing was perfect, the singing incredible and the show is the perfect thing that can help you cheer up if you’re feeling depressed. Even if you’re lonely or just broke up with someone, this show is perfect for you and you’ll leave feeling amazing.
I couldn’t pick which song to put a video for from Irving Berlin’s White Christmas, so I found a trailer about the making of the show. The video actually describes what I am thinking in that it is almost impossible to put shows like this together, but when you have someone like Irving Berlin whose music is amazing and you combine it with a talented cast that is all able to work with each other, the show is incredible and everyone was tearing at the end. I actually teared more at this show than I did when I saw Les Miserables. If you get a chance to see Irving Berlin’s White Christmas at the Kennedy Center, go. The show is amazing and you will definitely love it.
