GREAT FAMILY SHOW

We've seen tons of musicals and this was a wonderful show. I loved the seasonal aspect and the tap sequences were amazing.

PANTAGES / WHITE CHRISTMAS

I saw the White Christmas show with my 11 y.o. son. We both really liked it - fantastic. Pantages theatre is a great work of art in its own right. We had front row seats on the balcony, which were fantastic. Didn't much like being constantly hustled for money on Hollywood Blvd though.

ENJOY CHRISTMAS TIME

White Christmas was wonderful. Taking the show to the Hobby Center was a perfect choice of venue. A strong connection to the original White Christmas complete with snow. Singing and dancing to enjoy. Merry Christmas

DISAPPOINTING ENDING

White Christmas is a true classic and I realized that some things would change in a stage production, but I was disappointed in the ending. Much more effort was put into the first act and the second act was somewhat of a let down. The story was told, but not always in the right order. Some characters were added and I didn't feel they were necessary to the story line. There were some significant changes in how the story was told that took away from the overall premise. The addition of the tap dance numbers were great and they were appropriate. The saga of Phil and Judy and the fake engagement was eliminated. The granddaughter was a nine year old child and not a teenager. The biggest disappointment to me was the scene with the general near the end. Very little was made of the efforts of the all the men to come to Vermont at Christmas to honor their former general. This is the most poignant scene in the movie and it was not given any precedence in the production at all.

ACTORS DID A GREAT JOB, THE WRITERS RUINED IT!

I love the movie with Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye. I watch it a number of times each season. So I was excited to see it was being done at the Kennedy Center. After having just seen the performance I am watching the movie again. The actors did a great job (especially the little girl) but why did the writers change SO much. They took out some of the best numbers, revised the ending and changed big things (like Wallace and Davis get on a train - in the movie they are headed to Radio City in NYC from Florida; in the production they are headed to Florida supposedly Wallace accepts it that everyone is over dressed for Florida)! I enjoyed it but would have liked it better if the writers had stayed true to the actual story.

GOOD PERFORMANCE/ DANCING- INCORRECT SCRIPT/STORY

The performers are great. Problem is the script is wrong--used wrong names, incorrect story line-- if you are going to do a play about a movie, then get the story line correct. Use the music/songs from the movie, too.
