Saw this in Tulsa 11/16/13. Although the dancing, music, and singing were good,(not exceptional, but good)the play was awful. You can't take a classic like White Christmas and change it-ruins the whole thing. If I hadn't have paid so much for the tickets, I would have left. To many changes were made: grand daughter a lot younger and she starts reading the letter to her grandfather, and then she also wants to get into the show (like Lucy in "I love Lucy), instead of "Snow" being sung by the 4 main character's, it was sung by strangers, General gets a second letter saying he is accepted back into the military, the end, where they come out and all sing White Christmas-not much time was spent on this scene and not even sure White Christmas was sung in full-costumes were not good either. These are just a few of the changes and disappointments of the show. Really upset that we paid so much money for a lousy show.

I just saw the musical in St. Louis. I agree with the other reviews, too many changes. If you are interested in seeing White Christmas, rent the movie. The story does not follow the movie, too many changes to list. But must frustrating was the musical did not include all of the songs from the movie, and worst, they added at least 4 that were from other movies. AND what in the world was up with the Farmer who was on stage almost more than the leads. Don't waste you time or money!

After 28 years as Broadway season ticket holders at The Fox Atlanta, this was about the worst show we have seen. Dull, plodding, boring, and oh so predictable. The most cringe worthy jokes. Singing was just so so. Dancing was just so so. Cast was mostly just average, certainly not on par with what we usually see at The Fox. We left at intermission and glad we did. We heard from friends that the second act was even worse than the first. We do not enjoy giving bad reviews, but hopefully we can prevent someone else from wasting their money.

The production of White Christmas was extremely disappointing. I love attending the theater and I consider it a privilege. However the sets, acting, dancing and music was not to the calliber that I would have expected for this production at the Fox.

I've enjoyed most of the touring company shows at the PAC immensely over the past 20 years. However, "White Christmas" was a train wreck. The biggest problem was the book of the show. The producers clearly chose to stray from the plot and characters from the film, but the changes were bad ones -- from almost eliminating the army sequence at the beginning to materially enlarging the parts of the housekeeper (who turns out to have been in show business!) and the young girl, Susan(who suddenly turns into Lucille Ball and wants to be in the show!). There were also some odd choices in staging the songs. In the film, "Snow" is a small intimate number where the four lead characters blend their talents and we see that they belong together. In the play, it's an ensemble number sung with strangers. Some of the costuming choices were odd as well (red tuxedos for the closing scene instead of Santa outfits!). The tap dancing was great and the singing was fine, but no one matches Bing.

Loved the Bing Crosby movie so hoped this play would be good. Sets were high school and so was the play. Singing and dancing were average to poor. The 2 annoying, bimbo ladies were not necessary...Was this an attempt at humor, for who? So disappointed, we left at intermission. Paid so much money for the tickets and went on Christmas Eve...huge let down.

Not a bad seat in the house, wide aisles for the size of the venue. Seats are a bit narrow. One arm rest for two arms can be a challenge. We went to see White Christmas and it was wonderful. The cast did a fine job in their adaptation. The dancing was fantastic. We loved seeing the tap dancing, a dieing art. Several families of all age groups made it a pleasant experience for all. Then we went to a local resturant, Theos, to finish our date night with a great meal and drinks. Why go to Chicago and deal with the traffic, parking and other issues when we have it in our back yard!! Highly recommend this to everyone of all ages.
