Photo Flash: 'White Christmas' Toronto Opening Night

‚Äč

Irving Berlin's White Christmas, the holiday musical featuring the classic songs of Irving Berlin, is playing the Sony Centre in Toronto through January 5, 2008. It opened on November 30.

Irving Berlin's White Christmas stars Kate Baldwin as Betty Haynes, Barry Flatman as General Waverly, Kate Hennig as Martha Watson, Mike Masters as Ralph Sheldrake, Shannon O'Bryan as Judy Haynes, Graham Rowat as Bob Wallace, Cassidy Swanston as Susan, and Tony Yazbeck as Phil Davis.

"The musical tells the story of two showbiz buddies putting on a show in a picturesque Vermont inn, and finding their perfect mates in the bargain," according to press notes.

Irving Berlin's White Christmas features a book by David Ives (All in the Timing) and Paul Blake in addition to its classic Berlin songs. Irving Berlin's White Christmas boasts direction by Tony Award-winner Walter Bobbie (Chicago) and choreography by Randy Skinner (42nd Street).† The Producing Office (Kevin McCollum, Jeffrey Seller), Paul Blake, Dan Markley, and Sonny Everett in association with Paramount Pictures, produce Irving Berlin's White Christmas.

Irving Berlin's White Christmas is based on the 1954 Paramount film that starred Bing Crosby, Rosemary Clooney, Danny Kaye and Vera-Ellen. Many Berlin classics are showcased in this new production, including "Count Your Blessings," "Sisters," "How Deep is the Ocean" and the title song.
