BWW Review: Irving Berlin's HOLIDAY INN at Marriott TheatreBWW Review: Irving Berlin's HOLIDAY INN at Marriott Theatre
by Emily McClanathan - Nov 22, 2018

With its abundance of classic tunes and tightly choreographed ensemble numbers, Irving Berlin's HOLIDAY INN is the perfect fit for the Marriott Theatre, a company that excels with dance-heavy shows in its intimate, in-the-round space. Denis Jones directs and choreographs a talented cast in this regional premiere of the 2016 Broadway musical (which Jones also choreographed). Based on the 1942 film featuring Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire, the stage adaptation makes some vital updates (most obviously, getting rid of a notorious blackface number), while capitalizing on the nostalgia of songs like 'White Christmas,' 'Happy Holiday,' 'Blue Skies,' and 'Cheek to Cheek.'
