It’s been announced that Leicester Curve’s revival of WHITE CHRISTMAS, which played to critical acclaim in the Midlands this past Christmas, will transfer to London’s Dominion Theatre for a festive season later this year.
Directed by Curve AD Nikolai Foster, the musical transfers to the West End for a limited run from 15th November to 4th January, with Danny Mac and Dan Burton confirmed to reprise their roles as Bob Wallace and Phil Davis from Leicester. Mac’s stage credits include lead roles in SUNSET BOULEVARD and ON THE TOWN, whilst Burton received an Olivier nomination for his work in the recent West End revival of GYPSY. Further casting is still to be announced.
The musical, based on the 1954 film of the same name, features music by Irving Berlin and book by David Ives and Paul Blake. The stage adaptation of WHITE CHRISTMAS premiered in 2000 and has since enjoyed Broadway runs in 2008 and 2009. The musical has performed extensively throughout the UK at Christmas time, with a West End production also taking place at the Dominion Theatre in 2014. The 2018 Leicester Curve revival and subsequent London transfer is a new production of the show.
WHITE CHRISTMAS features choreography by Stephen Mear, set design by Michael Taylor, costume design by Diego Pitarch, lighting design by Mark Henderson and sound design by Tom Marshall. Musical supervision is by Stephen Brooker and Orchestrations are by Larry Blank with new musical arrangements by Jason Carr.
WHITE CHRISTMAS runs at London’s Dominion Theatre from 15th November to 4th January. Tickets go on general sale from 21st March.
